  • - RAY COMFORT: IT'S ONLY WHEN A CELEBRITY DIES
  • 00:00:02.180 --> 00:00:05.090
  • THAT THE WORLD IS REMINDED THAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:00:05.110 --> 00:00:06.220
  • AN APPOINTMENT.
  • 00:00:06.240 --> 00:00:08.120
  • EVERY YEAR 54 MILLION HUMAN BEINGS KICK THE BUCKET.
  • 00:00:08.140 --> 00:00:12.260
  • THEY DIE.
  • 00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:14.190
  • DID YOU EVER HAVE CHRONIC DEPRESSION?
  • 00:00:14.210 --> 00:00:16.000
  • - I DID.
  • 00:00:16.020 --> 00:00:17.220
  • - RAY COMCORT: WHAT CAUSED THAT?
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:22.190
  • - WHEN I WAS TEN TO 12 YEARS OLD I WAS GANG
  • 00:00:22.210 --> 00:00:23.280
  • RAPED BY THREE MEN FROM MY CHURCH.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.180
  • - ONE OF THE TIMES I OVERDOSED ON IBUPROFEN I
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:27.270
  • ACTUALLY REALLY MESSED UP MY INTERNAL ORGANS.
  • 00:00:27.290 --> 00:00:30.080
  • - FEMALE ANNOUNCER: THE QUESTION IS, HOW DO YOU
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:32.000
  • STOP IT BEFORE IT STOPS YOU?
  • 00:00:32.020 --> 00:00:35.080
  • THE ANSWER COMING UP NEXT ON PRAISE.
  • 00:00:35.100 --> 00:00:37.130
  • 00:00:37.150 --> 00:00:50.280
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:01:02.160
  • - MATT CROUCH: A TOPIC THAT IS RARELY IF EVER
  • 00:01:02.180 --> 00:01:05.270
  • TALKED ABOUT ON CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, THE SUBJECT
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:09.090
  • OF SUICIDE.
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:11.180
  • THE PRODUCTION EXIT WILL BE ON THE AIR SHORTLY.
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:14.270
  • OUR GUEST RAY COMFORT, THIS SUBJECT HOW DID IT START?
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:20.000
  • WHERE DID THIS PRODUCTION COME FROM, AND WHY?
  • 00:01:20.020 --> 00:01:22.090
  • - RAY COMFORT: PROBABLY ABOUT SIX MONTHS
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:25.120
  • AGO I SAW A WELL-KNOWN COUNTRY AND WESTERN STAR
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:27.060
  • WHO WAS SUFFERING FROM SEVERE DEPRESSION ON
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:29.220
  • PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, AND SHE WAS A WRITE OFF.
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:32.040
  • HER FACE WAS SWOLLEN.
  • 00:01:32.060 --> 00:01:33.250
  • HER HANDS WERE SHAKING, AND MY HEART WENT OUT TO
  • 00:01:33.270 --> 00:01:35.120
  • HER, SO I BEGAN TO STUDY CHRONIC DEPRESSION AND
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:38.220
  • FOUND OUT THAT A WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION SAYS
  • 00:01:38.240 --> 00:01:43.000
  • THAT 150 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE SUFFER
  • 00:01:43.020 --> 00:01:46.000
  • FROM DEPRESSION.
  • 00:01:46.020 --> 00:01:47.120
  • I THOUGHT, WHY IS THAT?
  • 00:01:47.140 --> 00:01:48.260
  • AND THEN THEY CALLED IT A DISEASE.
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:50.270
  • IT'S A MENTAL DISEASE WHICH BRINGS CONNOTATIONS
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:55.050
  • TO IT, AND SO I BEGAN RESEARCHING AND PUT IT
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:59.040
  • ALL TOGETHER AND ENDED UP WITH THIS MOVIE.
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:01.130
  • IT'S JUST MY FATHER IS VERY CREATIVE IF YOU READ
  • 00:02:01.150 --> 00:02:03.090
  • GENESIS CHAPTER 1, AND I SEEM TO FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS.
  • 00:02:03.110 --> 00:02:05.280
  • YOU JUST SPEAK AND IT JUST HAPPENS, SO WE'VE GOT
  • 00:02:06.000 --> 00:02:08.250
  • THIS MOVIE THAT SOUNDS NEGATIVE ABOUT DEPRESSION
  • 00:02:08.270 --> 00:02:11.010
  • AND SUICIDE, BUT IT'S NOT.
  • 00:02:11.030 --> 00:02:12.240
  • YOU'LL ACTUALLY WEEP WITH JOY AS YOU GET TO THE
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:14.210
  • END, AND SOMETHING INCREDIBLE HAPPENS, BUT I
  • 00:02:14.230 --> 00:02:16.290
  • WENT TO A LOCAL COLLEGE AND I WAS SAYING LORD, I
  • 00:02:17.010 --> 00:02:20.130
  • NEED TO TALK TO KIDS THAT ARE THINKING OF
  • 00:02:20.150 --> 00:02:22.120
  • COMMITTING SUICIDE, AND I GOT FOUR IN A ROW.
  • 00:02:22.140 --> 00:02:25.090
  • IT JUST BLEW ME AWAY.
  • 00:02:25.110 --> 00:02:26.170
  • AND THEY OPENED UP TO ME AND SHARED THEIR HEART,
  • 00:02:26.190 --> 00:02:28.150
  • AND ONE YOUNG GUY SAID, I SAID, "HAVE YOU EVER
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:30.020
  • THOUGHT OF SUICIDE?"
  • 00:02:30.040 --> 00:02:31.090
  • AND HE SAYS, "YEAH.
  • 00:02:31.110 --> 00:02:33.080
  • I TRIED THREE TIMES.
  • 00:02:33.100 --> 00:02:34.090
  • I TRIED TO HANG MYSELF.
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:35.140
  • I TRIED TO SHOOT MYSELF.
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:37.000
  • I TOOK PILLS."
  • 00:02:37.020 --> 00:02:38.130
  • I SAID, "YOU DID THREE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS?"
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:39.270
  • HE SAID, "ACTUALLY SIX."
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:41.230
  • AND HE'S ONLY ABOUT 17 YEARS OLD, AND MY HEART
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:44.290
  • WENT OUT TO HIM, AND SO WE HAVE A GENERATION THAT
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:47.120
  • HAVE FORSAKEN GOD, THAT HAVE FORSAKEN HOPE, AND
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:49.270
  • SO THEY'RE GODLESS AND HOPELESS, AND NOT THAT
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:53.200
  • BUT TOLD BY SO MANY PEOPLE THEY'RE MERE
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:57.200
  • PRODUCTS OF EVOLUTION.
  • 00:02:57.220 --> 00:02:58.270
  • THEY'RE JUST BEASTS, NOTHING BETTER THAN A DOG
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:01.090
  • WHEN WE KNOW THEY'RE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD AND
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:03.040
  • THEY HAVE GREAT WORTH AND THEY HAVE PURPOSE, AND
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:04.260
  • THEY CAN HAVE HOPE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:06.080
  • SO WE MADE THE MOVIE TO GIVE AN ANSWER TO WHAT
  • 00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:09.130
  • THE WORLD HAS NO ANSWER TO.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:11.050
  • THEY SAY THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSES
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:12.170
  • CHRONIC DEPRESSION.
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:13.230
  • WE DO.
  • 00:03:13.250 --> 00:03:15.110
  • AND THEY DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO SUICIDE.
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:17.070
  • ALL THEY CAN DO IS PRESCRIBE FOR
  • 00:03:17.090 --> 00:03:19.230
  • THE SYMPTOMS, GIVE DRUGS.
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:21.250
  • - TONIGHT THIS PRODUCTION EXIT WILL BE
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:24.260
  • STARTING SHORTLY RIGHT HERE ON THE PRAISE PROGRAM.
  • 00:03:24.280 --> 00:03:27.150
  • THERE'S SOME INFORMATION ON YOUR SCREEN.
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:29.210

  • 00:03:29.230 --> 00:03:33.070
  • WANT YOU TO GET THE PRODUCTION.
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:35.080
  • THANK YOU, RAY, FOR DOING THIS, BRINGING IT TO US
  • 00:03:35.100 --> 00:03:39.170
  • WITHOUT CHARGE SO THAT THE CONTENT CAN GO AROUND
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:44.070
  • THE WORLD, SO GRANDMA, PAPA, IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE
  • 00:03:44.090 --> 00:03:47.260
  • THAT NEEDS THIS, STRUGGLING, WE RARELY
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:50.110
  • TALK ABOUT SUBJECTS LIKE THIS IN THE CHURCH, BUT

  • WE'RE HEADLONG INTO IT TONIGHT.
  • 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:55.000
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: YEAH.
  • 00:03:55.020 --> 00:03:56.100
  • THERE'S SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:58.150
  • YOU KNOW, THIS 13 -- - 13 REASONS WHY?
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:04:01.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS?
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:03.030
  • - HELP ME.
  • 00:04:03.050 --> 00:04:04.210
  • - IT'S A NETFLIX PHENOMENON THAT I WAS
  • 00:04:04.230 --> 00:04:07.250
  • TALKING TO 200 CHRISTIAN KIDS THE OTHER DAY, HOW
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:10.040
  • MANY HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF 13 REASONS WHY ?
  • 00:04:10.060 --> 00:04:11.260
  • ALMOST EVERY HAND WENT UP.
  • 00:04:11.280 --> 00:04:13.070
  • IT'S LIKE A CULT.
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:15.230
  • THEY SO LOVE THIS SERIES OF PROGRAMS, AND IT'S A
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:18.040
  • GIRL THAT COMMITTED TO SUICIDE, AND BUT SHE SENT
  • 00:04:18.060 --> 00:04:19.290
  • OUT 13 TAPES TO HER FRIENDS AND SAID,
  • 00:04:20.010 --> 00:04:23.150
  • "YOU'RE ONE OF THE REASONS THAT I COMMITTED SUICIDE."
  • 00:04:23.170 --> 00:04:25.230
  • AND I WATCHED THE DEATH SCENE, AND I'M USED TO
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:27.220
  • SPECIAL EFFECTS.
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:29.080
  • WE DO IT IN OUR PRODUCTIONS, BUT I WENT
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:30.290
  • INTO HYPER VENTILATION AND WEPT WHEN I SAW HER
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:32.260
  • GET FULLY CLOTHED INTO A BATHTUB, GET A RAZOR
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:36.160
  • BLADE AND SLIT HER WRIST IS DOWNWARD AND JUST
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:39.200
  • BLEED, AND ALL THE TIME SHE WAS GOING [ GASPING ]
  • 00:04:39.220 --> 00:04:41.030
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:42.110
  • AND THEN SHE DID HER OTHER WRIST, AND THEN YOU
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:44.020
  • HEAR HER MUM SAY, "HONEY, ARE YOU OKAY?
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:45.100
  • ARE YOU OKAY?"
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:46.060
  • THROUGH THE DOOR.
  • 00:04:46.080 --> 00:04:47.130
  • AND SHE SAID, "THERE'S WATER COMING--"
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:49.120
  • AND SHE OPENS THE DOOR, AND HER MOTHER SEES JUST
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:50.260
  • THIS BATHTUB FULL OF BLOOD.
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:52.140
  • WHAT THE PRODUCERS DID WAS SHOW YOUNG PEOPLE HOW
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:55.210
  • TO COMMIT SUICIDE, BUT MORE THAN THAT THEY
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:58.060
  • DIDN'T REALIZE THAT OUT THERE THERE ARE CUTTERS,
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:05:01.100
  • WHAT'S KNOWN AS CUTTERS.
  • 00:05:01.120 --> 00:05:02.220
  • IN EXIT , THERE'S THIS YOUNG LADY WHO'S AN
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:06.090
  • ATHEIST, AND I SAID, "DO YOU EVER CONSIDER SUICIDE?"
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:09.030
  • SHE SAYS, "ALL THE TIME."
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:11.020
  • I SAYS, "ISN'T IT HORRIBLE?"
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.060
  • SHE SAID, "YOU GET USED TO IT."
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:14.010
  • AND I THINK THAT'S THE MOST PROFOUND STATEMENT
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:15.280
  • IN THE WHOLE MOVIE, "YOU GET USED TO IT."
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:18.290
  • CUTTERS CUT THEIR WRISTS ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:21.050
  • THEY DRAW BLOOD.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:22.180
  • THEY'RE PRACTICING FOR SUICIDE.
  • 00:05:22.200 --> 00:05:23.280
  • THEY'RE GETTING USED TO IT, AND THE FIRST TIME I
  • 00:05:24.000 --> 00:05:25.250
  • SAW THAT DEATH SCENE IT HORRIFIED ME.
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:27.230
  • THE SECOND TIME I WAS SORT OF HORRIFIED.
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.260
  • THIRD TIME I KIND OF GOT USED TO IT.
  • 00:05:29.280 --> 00:05:31.100
  • WHEN WE'RE PRODUCING ONE OF OUR MOVIES WE'RE DOING
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:33.160
  • HOLOCAUST AND SEEING BODY PILED UP, AND WE JUST HAD
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:37.200
  • TO GO OVER A CERTAIN FOOTAGE AGAIN AND AGAIN,
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:39.170
  • AND I WENT IN AND ONE OF OUR EDITORS WAS EATING A
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:41.130
  • SANDWICH WHILE HE WAS EDITING.
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:42.230
  • AND I SAID, STOP.
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:44.030
  • I SAID, YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:45.180
  • WE'VE GOT TO HAVE HONOR FOR THESE PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:47.170
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE HORRIFIED BY WHAT WE SEE.
  • 00:05:47.190 --> 00:05:49.110
  • WE CAN'T GET USED TO IT.
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:50.150
  • - WE DO DESENSITIZE.
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:52.050
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.170
  • AND THIS GENERATION IS GETTING DESENSITIZED,
  • 00:05:53.190 --> 00:05:55.090
  • AND THE HEROIN OF THE SERIES, THE FEMALE
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:57.190
  • COMMITS SUICIDE.
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:59.220
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO GET COPY CATS BECAUSE THEY'VE
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:01.110
  • SHOWN THEM HOW, AND THEN THE CUTTERS OUT THERE ARE
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:04.000
  • ALREADY GOING.
  • 00:06:04.020 --> 00:06:05.180
  • SO THIS MOVIE THAT WE'VE MADE GIVES AN ANSWER TO
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:08.200
  • SUICIDE, DOESN'T LEAVE THEM HOPELESS AS 13
  • 00:06:08.220 --> 00:06:11.020
  • REASONS WHY DOES.
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:12.060
  • - THE ANSWER TO EVERY SITUATION, THE
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:15.150
  • APPLICABILITY OF JESUS, THE PERSON OF JESUS AND
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:19.120
  • THE ANSWER THAT HE PROVIDES TO US IS
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.170
  • OBVIOUS TO SOME.
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.260
  • IT'S NOT OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE.
  • 00:06:23.280 --> 00:06:25.280
  • NOT EVERYONE THAT TUNES BY CHRISTIAN TELEVISION
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:28.200
  • AND SEES A PRODUCTION LIKE THIS UNDERSTANDS, SO
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:34.070
  • LOOK, THE FAITHFUL, THOSE THAT WATCH TBN YOU KNOW
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:39.090
  • THE ANSWER TO SUICIDE IS JESUS, BUT IT IS A VERY
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:42.260
  • VERY COMPLICATED MATTER, OKAY.
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:46.070
  • THERE IS, YOU KNOW, NO QUICK ANSWER.
  • 00:06:46.090 --> 00:06:51.240
  • SUICIDE HAS TOUCHED SOME OF OUR FRIENDS, AND WE
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:57.150
  • HAVE WALKED THROUGH, I'VE SAT WITH A FRIEND IN A
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:07:03.060
  • BOOTH AT A RESTAURANT WITH TEARS STREAMING DOWN
  • 00:07:03.080 --> 00:07:06.010
  • BOTH OF OUR FACES, AND YOU KNOW, THE REST OF THE
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:10.030
  • FAMILY JUST SCREAMS OUT, WHY?!
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:13.210
  • IT SEEMS AS IF -- MY OWN MOTHER HAD A BOUT WITH
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:20.100
  • DEPRESSION WHERE THE QUESTION SHE WAS
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:25.040
  • ASKING, WOULDN'T EVERYONE BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME?
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.100
  • AND WHAT IF I JUST KEPT WALKING AT THE EDGE OF THE
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:32.280
  • OCEAN AND JUST WALKED THROUGH?
  • 00:07:33.000 --> 00:07:34.150
  • SO THE IDEA THAT THIS CAN TOUCH ANYWHERE AT ANY
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:37.150
  • TIME IN THIS DEPRESSION.
  • 00:07:37.170 --> 00:07:40.050
  • YOU HAVE WALKED THROUGH AND GONE TO INTO A VERY
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:45.190
  • DEEP SUBJECT.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:47.060
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS SUBJECT AFTER YOU'VE
  • 00:07:47.080 --> 00:07:50.230
  • WALKED ABOUT IT AND IN ESSENCE PREPARE OUR
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:53.090
  • AUDIENCE FOR ABOUT WHO SHOULD BE WATCHING THIS AND WHY.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:58.020
  • - WELL, IF ANYONE IS BREATHING THEY SHOULD BE
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:00.060
  • WATCHING THIS BECAUSE IT AFFECTS ALL OF US.
  • 00:08:00.080 --> 00:08:04.000
  • ONE OF THE MOST SCARY SIGNS THAT SOMEONE IS
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:06.210
  • GOING TO COMMIT SUICIDE IS THERE ARE NO SIGNS.
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.180
  • YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:11.160
  • IN THEIR MIND.
  • 00:08:11.180 --> 00:08:12.220
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE THINKING.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:14.030
  • I HAD A FRIEND.
  • 00:08:14.050 --> 00:08:15.040
  • HIS NAME WAS RICHARD.
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:16.010
  • I WAS A NEW CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:17.020
  • HE WAS A BRAND-NEW CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:18.150
  • I WAS ABOUT TWO OR THREE YEARS OLD AS A CHRISTIAN, AND
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:20.260
  • RICHARD WAS VERY SHY, VERY SINCERE.
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:23.240
  • HE WOULDN'T LOOK AT YOU IN THE EYE.
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:25.200
  • HE'D LOOK DOWN WHEN HE SPOKE TO YOU.
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:26.270
  • HE WAS THAT SORT OF SHY, AND HE TOLD ME ABOUT A
  • 00:08:26.290 --> 00:08:28.040
  • GIRLFRIEND HE HAD AND HOW HE WAS DELIGHTED TO HAVE
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.260
  • THIS GIRLFRIEND, AND I ENCOURAGED HIM IN THAT.
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:31.180
  • A WEEK LATER HE COMMITTED SUICIDE, AND WHAT HAD
  • 00:08:31.200 --> 00:08:34.210
  • HAPPENED IS HE WAS SO SHY HE DIDN'T TELL THE GIRL
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:37.270
  • HE LIKED HER, AND AT A CHRISTIAN CAMP SHE HAD
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:39.290
  • GONE OFF WITH ANOTHER GUY.
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:41.100
  • HE GOT HURT AND THREW HIMSELF OFF A CLIFF, AND
  • 00:08:41.120 --> 00:08:43.170
  • IF I COULD HAVE TALKED TO RICHARD, I WOULD SAY
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:47.190
  • RICHARD, WHY DIDN'T YOU COME AND TALK TO ME?
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:50.170
  • I WOULD HAVE SAID, RICHARD, THERE'S
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:52.060
  • SOMETHING ABOUT HUMAN NATURE.
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:53.140
  • WHEN WE GET HURT WE GO A DOWNWARD PATH OF HURT,
  • 00:08:53.160 --> 00:08:55.130
  • REJECTION, SELF-PITY, RESENTMENT, ANGER,
  • 00:08:55.150 --> 00:08:59.000
  • BITTERNESS, HATRED, DEPRESSION, AND SUICIDE.
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:02.230
  • IT'S PREDICTABLE.
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:04.030
  • IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US.
  • 00:09:04.050 --> 00:09:05.100
  • IF SOMEONE HURTS ME, I JUST FEEL A SENSE OF
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:08.010
  • REJECTION, AND THEN I FEEL SELF-PITY, AND THEN
  • 00:09:08.030 --> 00:09:09.160
  • A RESENTMENT COMES UP.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:10.240
  • AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:12.130
  • AND I WOULD SAY RICHARD, YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN NOW.
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:14.090
  • YOU'VE GOT TO NIP THIS IN THE BUD.
  • 00:09:14.110 --> 00:09:16.030
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE GRACE.
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.180
  • WHEN SOMEONE HURTS YOU, STOP THE POISON RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:20.200
  • IF SOMEONE CHEWS ME OUT INSTEAD OF SAYING, OH,
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:22.150
  • THAT REALLY HURT AND THINK IT OVER, I SAID NO,
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:26.030
  • HE'S PROBABLY HAVING PROBLEMS AT HOME.
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.150
  • HIS WIFE IS GETTING AFTER HIM.
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:29.020
  • THEY HAVEN'T GOT MONEY.
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.040
  • THIS IS GOING WRONG.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:31.120
  • HIS MOTHER IS DYING OF CANCER, AND THAT'S WHY HE
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:32.170
  • CHEWED ME OUT.
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:34.160
  • AND HAVING GRACE PROTECTS ME, AND SO IT'S VERY
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:37.180
  • IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE WORK.
  • 00:09:37.200 --> 00:09:39.050
  • ANOTHER, AND THIS IS WHAT WE TOUCH ON IN EXIT, ONE
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:42.000
  • MAJOR REASON A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE DEPRESSED
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:45.060
  • INCLUDING CELEBRITIES IS THE FACT THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:47.260
  • ACCORDING TO HEBREWS 2 IS HAUNTED BY THE FEAR OF
  • 00:09:47.280 --> 00:09:49.270
  • DEATH UNTIL WE COME TO CHRIST.
  • 00:09:49.290 --> 00:09:51.160
  • WE ARE HAUNTED BY IT.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:53.100
  • WE'RE HELD CAPTIVE TO THE FEAR OF DEATH.
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:55.140
  • THE SCRIPTURES SAY WE'RE SUBJECT TO THE FEAR OF
  • 00:09:55.160 --> 00:09:57.280
  • DEATH ALL OUR LIFETIME, AND DYING AS A
  • 00:09:58.000 --> 00:10:01.270
  • NON-CHRISTIAN IS INCREDIBLY FEARFUL.
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:03.190
  • IT'S LIKE JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE 10.000 FEET
  • 00:10:03.210 --> 00:10:06.040
  • WITHOUT A PARACHUTE.
  • 00:10:06.060 --> 00:10:08.170
  • IF I HAD TO DO THAT, I WOULD BE MORTIFIED WITH
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:12.150
  • FEAR LOOKING DOWN THINKING, I HAVE TO JUMP
  • 00:10:12.170 --> 00:10:13.260
  • ANY MINUTE.
  • 00:10:13.280 --> 00:10:15.180
  • IF SOMEONE GAVE ME A PARACHUTE I'D GO OH,
  • 00:10:15.200 --> 00:10:17.180
  • I'M SAVED!
  • 00:10:17.200 --> 00:10:19.180
  • AND I'D HAVE FAITH IN THE PARACHUTE AND CLING TO IT.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:22.040
  • THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE UNSAVED AND
  • 00:10:22.060 --> 00:10:25.000
  • THE SAVED.
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:26.170
  • WE HAVE A SAVIOR.
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:27.160
  • - YES.
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:28.260
  • - THE MORE WE CLING TO HIM THE LESS FEAR WE HAVE.
  • 00:10:28.280 --> 00:10:29.230
  • THE LORD IS MY HELPER.
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:30.230
  • I WILL NOT FEAR.
  • 00:10:30.250 --> 00:10:32.130
  • THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:34.080
  • DEATH YOU'RE WITH ME.
  • 00:10:34.100 --> 00:10:35.200
  • YOUR ROD AND STAFF COMFORT ME.
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:36.280
  • SO I PUT ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:38.270
  • HE'S MY SAVIOR.
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:40.040
  • HE'S MY PARACHUTE, AND WHEN MY TIME COMES I CAN
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:42.110
  • SAY I WILL NOT FEAR.
  • 00:10:42.130 --> 00:10:44.020
  • I WILL HAVE FAITH.
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:45.140
  • I WILL TRUST IN JESUS.
  • 00:10:45.160 --> 00:10:46.160
  • I'LL TRUST IN JESUS.
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:47.260
  • BUT THE UNSAVED THEY'VE GOT NOTHING TO CLING TO.
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:50.010
  • AND SO WE SHOULD BE HORRIFIED FOR THEM, AND
  • 00:10:50.030 --> 00:10:52.190
  • THAT'S WHY WE'VE MADE THIS MOVIE.
  • 00:10:52.210 --> 00:10:54.260
  • IT'S -- ALL OUR MOVIES ARE TOOLS FOR EVANGELISM.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:58.010
  • THEY'RE A PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:10:58.030 --> 00:10:59.270
  • WE'VE DONE EVOLUTION.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.120
  • WE'VE DONE HOMOSEXUALITY.
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:02.090
  • WE'VE DONE ABORTION.
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:03.220
  • BUT ALL OF THEM OUR AGENDA IS TO UPHOLD THE
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:06.050
  • GOSPEL BECAUSE THAT NOT ONLY HELPS PEOPLE IN THIS
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:09.210
  • LIFE, BUT IT FIXES THE WHOLE OF ETERNITY FOR THEM.
  • 00:11:09.230 --> 00:11:12.200
  • THEY FIND EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:14.070
  • THE FEAR OF DEATH GOES.
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:15.200
  • THEY'VE GOT SOMETHING TO CONTROL IT.
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:16.280
  • AND SO WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS MOVIE.
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.230
  • IT'S NOT NEGATIVE.
  • 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:19.270
  • IT IS POSITIVE.
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:21.160
  • IT WON'T MAKE YOU DEPRESSED.
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:22.290
  • YOU'LL END UP CRYING BECAUSE OF SOMETHING
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:24.210
  • WONDERFUL THAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF IT.
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:26.180
  • IT REALLY IS A THRILLING MOVIE DESPITE THE TITLE, EXIT.
  • 00:11:26.200 --> 00:11:30.070
  • - WOW.
  • 00:11:30.090 --> 00:11:31.230
  • - IT'S COMING BASICALLY IN JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:35.260
  • I HAVE ONE FINAL QUESTION.
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:37.090
  • IN CASE THERE IS SOMEONE VIEWING THAT HAS HAD TO
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:42.260
  • WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:46.110
  • EITHER PERSONALLY AND ATTEMPTED SUICIDE,
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:49.120
  • OR A FAMILY THAT HAS HAD TO ENDURE THE PAIN OF THE
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:55.250
  • AFTERMATH OF A SUICIDE, WHAT ARE YOUR WORDS TO
  • 00:11:55.270 --> 00:11:58.280
  • THEM IN PREPARATION FOR WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO SEE?
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:03.170
  • - BOY, MY HEART GOES OUT TO ANYONE THAT'S SUFFERED
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:07.270
  • A LOSS OF A LOVED ONE BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT A
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:10.020
  • TREMENDOUS FEELING OF GUILT.
  • 00:12:10.040 --> 00:12:12.130
  • MY THOUGHT -EVEN RICHARD WAS JUST A FRIEND.
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:14.260
  • HE WASN'T A LOVED ONE, BUT I WAS BURDENED
  • 00:12:14.280 --> 00:12:17.200
  • WITH GUILT.
  • 00:12:17.220 --> 00:12:18.230
  • WHY DIDN'T I DETECT SOMETHING?
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.030
  • WHY DIDN'T I SAY SOMETHING?
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:21.010
  • WHY DIDN'T HE COME TO ME?
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:21.280
  • WHY? WHY?
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:24.030
  • SO I WOULD BE VERY CAUTIOUS IF YOU LOST A
  • 00:12:24.050 --> 00:12:25.130
  • LOVED ONE AND WATCHING THAT.
  • 00:12:25.150 --> 00:12:26.270
  • I DON'T WANT TO OPEN WOUNDS BECAUSE IT'S SO PAINFUL.
  • 00:12:26.290 --> 00:12:30.110
  • SOMEONE ONCE SAID IF YOU COMMIT SUICIDE, YOU DON'T
  • 00:12:30.130 --> 00:12:32.280
  • JUST GET RID OF YOUR PAIN.
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:34.100
  • YOU PASS IT ON TO THOSE YOU LOVE.
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:36.160
  • AND SO -- AND MOST SUES SIDES ARE IMPETUOUS.
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:40.160
  • IF YOU CAN TALK SOMEONE OUT OF IT, PUT IT OFF FOR
  • 00:12:40.180 --> 00:12:43.120
  • A DAY, THEY WON'T DO IT.
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:45.240
  • IT'S JUST THE SPUR OF THE MOMENT THING.
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.010
  • THIS PROBLEM IS JUST TOO BIG.
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:49.020
  • IT'S LIKE THE PHILIPPIAN JAILER WAS GOING TO
  • 00:12:49.040 --> 00:12:50.240
  • COMMIT SUICIDE.
  • 00:12:50.260 --> 00:12:52.010
  • REMEMBER THAT IN THE BOOK OF ACTS?
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:52.200
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:54.010
  • - PAUL AND SILAS SUNG HYMNS TO GOD WHEN THEY
  • 00:12:54.030 --> 00:12:57.120
  • SHOULD HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE.
  • 00:12:57.140 --> 00:12:58.150
  • I MEAN, THEY WERE IN PRISON.
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:12:59.160
  • THEY'D BEEN BEATEN.
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:00.230
  • THEY WERE IN CHAINS.
  • 00:13:00.250 --> 00:13:01.270
  • IT WAS JUST DEPRESSING.
  • 00:13:01.290 --> 00:13:02.260
  • THERE WAS NO WAY OUT.
  • 00:13:02.280 --> 00:13:04.000
  • THE ROMANS ARE GOING TO CRUCIFY THEM.
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:04.270
  • JUST KILL YOURSELF. NO.
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:05.240
  • THEY TRUSTED THE LORD.
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:07.230
  • THEY SANG PRAISES TO GOD, AND ALL THE PRISONERS
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:09.160
  • HEARD THEM.
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:11.010
  • AND THEN THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE, AND THE
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:13.080
  • CHAINS FELL OFF AND THE DOORS OPENED.
  • 00:13:13.100 --> 00:13:15.090
  • THAT'S A PICTURE OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:16.290
  • THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE WHEN CHRIST DIED.
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:18.280
  • OUR CHAINS FELL OFF, THE CHAIN OF SIN AND DEATH.
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:21.290
  • THE DOOR OF HEAVEN OPENED TO US, AND WHAT WAS
  • 00:13:22.010 --> 00:13:24.020
  • PAUL'S MESSAGE TO THE MAN WHO WAS GOING TO
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:25.110
  • KILL HIMSELF?
  • 00:13:25.130 --> 00:13:26.240
  • DO YOURSELF NO HARM.
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:28.040
  • WE'RE STILL HERE.
  • 00:13:28.060 --> 00:13:30.020
  • HE DIDN'T REALIZE IT, BUT HE SAW THE DOORS ARE
  • 00:13:30.040 --> 00:13:32.280
  • OPENED AND ALL THE PRISONERS WERE GONE.
  • 00:13:33.000 --> 00:13:34.120
  • HE THOUGHT, I'M A DEAD MAN.
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:36.070
  • ROMANS ARE GOING TO -- BECAUSE YOU SUFFER THE
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:37.200
  • PUNISHMENT OF THE PRISONER THAT GOT OUT.
  • 00:13:37.220 --> 00:13:38.290
  • IF HE WAS GOING TO BE CRUCIFIED THE NEXT
  • 00:13:39.010 --> 00:13:40.070
  • MORNING, YOU GOT HIS PUNISHMENT.
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.010
  • WELL, ALL THE PRISONERS WERE GONE.
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:43.230
  • HE COULD BASICALLY GET THE SWORD OUT REAL QUICK,
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:45.130
  • KILL HIMSELF.
  • 00:13:45.150 --> 00:13:46.220
  • BUT HE WAS DECEIVED.
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:48.040
  • THE PRISONERS WERE STILL THERE, AND WHAT WE SAY TO
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:50.020
  • THOSE THAT ARE THINKING TO COMMITTING SUICIDE DO
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:52.120
  • YOURSELF NO HARM BECAUSE IF YOU KILL YOURSELF, YOU

  • - LET ME TELL YOU WHY I BECAME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:36.290
  • IT WAS BECAUSE I WAS INCREDIBLY HAPPY.
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:39.280
  • THAT SOUNDS KIND OF WEIRD, BUT I HAD THIS BIG
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:41.150
  • HAPPINESS BUBBLE THAT I REALIZED THE SHARP PEN
  • 00:21:41.170 --> 00:21:44.040
  • OF REALITY WAS GONNA EXPLODE.
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:46.140
  • AT THE AGE OF 20, I HAD MY OWN BUSINESS.
  • 00:21:46.160 --> 00:21:48.120
  • IF SOMEONE SAID WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
  • 00:21:48.140 --> 00:21:50.020
  • I SAID I HAD MY OWN BUSINESS, WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:21:50.040 --> 00:21:52.160
  • I HAD MY OWN HOUSE, MY OWN WIFE, WE MADE A
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.140
  • CHILD AT THAT TIME. EVERYTHING I WANTED,
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:56.160
  • YET I SAW THAT I WAS PART OF THE ULTIMATE STATISTIC.
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:59.080
  • TEN OUT OF TEN DIE. AND IT BUGGED ME.
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:01.240
  • I THOUGHT THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:03.070
  • THERE'S A HUGE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM STOMPING ON
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:05.050
  • EVERYBODY AND NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:22:05.070 --> 00:22:07.120
  • WHY AREN'T SCIENTISTS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:09.130
  • WE DIE INSTEAD OF PUTTING A MAN ON THE MOON.
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:11.080
  • THIS WAS 44 YEARS AGO. AND SO I KIND OF LOST HOPE.
  • 00:22:11.100 --> 00:22:14.200
  • I LOOKED AT MY WIFE, MY NEWLY MARRIED I LOOKED AT
  • 00:22:14.220 --> 00:22:17.180
  • HER ASLEEP ON THE BED ONE NIGHT AND I BEGAN WEEPING
  • 00:22:17.200 --> 00:22:19.270
  • AND SAYING WHY IS IT THAT DEATH COULD SNATCH HER,
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:22.210
  • I'LL NEVER SEE HER AGAIN, AND I STARTED CRYING. WHY?
  • 00:22:22.230 --> 00:22:26.120
  • I WASN'T THINKING OF GOD AT THE TIME, EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:28.090
  • I USED TO PRAY AT NIGHT. I DIDN'T THINK GOD
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:30.010
  • HAD ANY ANSWER TO WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:22:30.030 --> 00:22:31.140
  • SO I LOST HOPE.
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:33.010
  • I BECAME LIKE SOLOMON. VANITY, VANITY.
  • 00:22:33.030 --> 00:22:35.080
  • LIFE IS LIKE CHASING THE WIND.
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:37.010
  • I WENT TO A DOCTOR TO SEE ABOUT I MIGHT EXTEND THIS
  • 00:22:37.030 --> 00:22:41.100
  • PRECIOUS LIFE OF MINE BY LIVING HEALTHY.
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:43.080
  • I WALKED INTO HIS ROOM AND HE WAS SITTING BEHIND
  • 00:22:43.100 --> 00:22:45.010
  • HIS DESK SMOKING A CIGARETTE LOOKING LIKE
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:46.220
  • DEATH WARMED UP, AND HE WAS DEAD A FEW YEARS LATER.
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:49.180
  • SO I LOST ALL HOPE. SIX MONTHS LATER I REALIZED
  • 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:52.110
  • THAT GOD HEARD MY PRAYER.
  • 00:22:52.130 --> 00:22:54.270
  • I WAS ON A SURFING TRIP AND A YOUNG GUY EXPLAINED
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:22:56.180
  • TO ME WHY WE DIE.
  • 00:22:56.200 --> 00:22:58.100
  • THE BIBLE GIVES THE EXPLANATION.
  • 00:22:58.120 --> 00:22:59.250
  • IT SAYS THIS, THE SOUL THAT SINS SHALL DIE.
  • 00:22:59.270 --> 00:23:03.080
  • THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.
  • 00:23:03.100 --> 00:23:05.260
  • WE DIE BECAUSE WE'VE BROKEN A LAW OF GOD.
  • 00:23:05.280 --> 00:23:09.090
  • THE SOUL THAT SINS IT SHALL DIE.
  • 00:23:09.110 --> 00:23:11.190
  • AND I THOUGHT WELL I HAVEN'T REALLY SINNED AND
  • 00:23:11.210 --> 00:23:14.140
  • I REMEMBER READING THAT NIGHT THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT
  • 00:23:14.160 --> 00:23:17.030
  • WHERE JESUS SAID YOU'VE HEARD IT SAID BY THEM
  • 00:23:17.050 --> 00:23:18.270
  • OF OLD YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY.
  • 00:23:18.290 --> 00:23:21.030
  • AND I SAID WELL I'LL PROBABLY MAKE IT TO
  • 00:23:21.050 --> 00:23:23.010
  • HEAVEN BECAUSE I'VE NEVER COMMITTED ADULTERY.
  • 00:23:23.030 --> 00:23:25.030
  • THEN I READ THE WORDS OF JESUS WHERE HE SAID
  • 00:23:25.050 --> 00:23:26.280
  • BUT I SAY TO YOU WHOEVER LOOKS UPON A WOMAN TO
  • 00:23:27.000 --> 00:23:29.150
  • LUST FOR HER HAS COMMITTED ADULTERY
  • 00:23:29.170 --> 00:23:31.110
  • ALREADY IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:33.140
  • AND IT'S LIKE AN ARROW HIT MY CHEST.
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:35.130
  • I THOUGHT, MAN, I'M GUILTY A MILLION TIMES
  • 00:23:35.150 --> 00:23:37.190
  • OVER BECAUSE LIKE EVERY YOUNG RED BLOODED GUY,
  • 00:23:37.210 --> 00:23:40.040
  • I GOT PLEASURE OUT OF LOOKING AT BEAUTIFUL WOMEN
  • 00:23:40.060 --> 00:23:42.200
  • SEXUALLY. THE HORMONES KIND OF KICKED IN.
  • 00:23:42.220 --> 00:23:45.130
  • I WASN'T SORRY FOR MY SIN AT THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:48.130
  • I WAS THINKING IS GOD SAYING THIS IS WRONG?
  • 00:23:48.150 --> 00:23:50.190
  • THAT'S WHAT I LIVE FOR.
  • 00:23:50.210 --> 00:23:51.260
  • HE'S SAYING I'VE GOT TO GIVE IT UP?
  • 00:23:51.280 --> 00:23:53.150
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT CAUSED ME TO HAVE CONTRITION IN
  • 00:23:53.170 --> 00:23:55.280
  • MY HEART FOR MY SINS?
  • 00:23:56.000 --> 00:23:57.120
  • IT WAS SEEING THE COST THAT GOD WENT TO TO
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:24:00.040
  • SAVE ME FROM MY SIN.
  • 00:24:00.060 --> 00:24:02.220
  • SIN IS VIOLATION OF THE LAW.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:04.170
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT.
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:05.290
  • IT'S LYING, IT'S STEALING, IT'S BREAKING
  • 00:24:06.010 --> 00:24:07.210
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, IT'S COMMITTING ADULTERY
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:09.110
  • IN YOUR HEART. THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOU HATE SOMEONE,
  • 00:24:09.130 --> 00:24:11.170
  • IF YOU HATE SOMEONE, YOU'RE A MURDERER; AND EVERY TIME
  • 00:24:11.190 --> 00:24:14.070
  • WE SIN, WE STORE UP GOD'S WRATH.
  • 00:24:14.090 --> 00:24:16.210
  • I LIVE IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA AS YOU CAN TELL
  • 00:24:16.230 --> 00:24:18.150
  • BY MY ACCENT. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:18.170 --> 00:24:21.060
  • AND WE'RE FAMILIAR WITH CAR CHASES ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:24:21.080 --> 00:24:23.220
  • EVERYONE DROPS ANYTHING AND YOU JUST WATCH CAR
  • 00:24:23.240 --> 00:24:25.130
  • CHASES, AND AS CARS ARE ZOOMING THROUGH THE
  • 00:24:25.150 --> 00:24:27.290
  • FREEWAYS, YOU HEAR A GUY IN A HELICOPTER SAY
  • 00:24:28.010 --> 00:24:30.220
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS GUY?
  • 00:24:30.240 --> 00:24:32.050
  • HE'S BROKEN THE LAW AGAIN. WHY DOESN'T HE JUST GIVE UP.
  • 00:24:32.070 --> 00:24:34.050
  • HE'S MAKING IT WORSE FOR HIMSELF.
  • 00:24:34.070 --> 00:24:35.170
  • HE'S BROKEN THE LAW AGAIN, HE'S GONNA BE
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:36.260
  • IN MORE TROUBLE.
  • 00:24:36.280 --> 00:24:38.180
  • AND WHAT WE'VE GOT TO REALIZE IS THERE'S AN EYE
  • 00:24:38.200 --> 00:24:40.060
  • OF GOD IN THE SKY, HE SEES EVERYTHING WE'RE
  • 00:24:40.080 --> 00:24:42.050
  • DOING, THE EYE OF THE LORD IS IN EVERY PLACE,
  • 00:24:42.070 --> 00:24:43.240
  • AND EVERY TIME WE SIN, WE'RE MAKING IT WORSE FOR
  • 00:24:43.260 --> 00:24:45.210
  • OURSELVES. WE'RE STORING UP GOD'S WRATH.
  • 00:24:45.230 --> 00:24:47.220
  • SO WHY DON'T WE JUST GIVE UP AND SAY OH, GOD,
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:50.130
  • I FLING MYSELF UPON YOUR MERCY.
  • 00:24:50.150 --> 00:24:52.260
  • I DON'T WANT TO END UP IN HELL BECAUSE OF MY SINS.
  • 00:24:52.280 --> 00:24:55.120
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS GOD IS RICH IN MERCY.
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:57.200
  • HE PROVIDED A SAVIOR.
  • 00:24:57.220 --> 00:24:59.090
  • GOD BECAME A HUMAN BEING TO SUFFER AND DIE ON THE
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:01.260
  • CROSS. WE BROKE GOD'S LAW, JESUS PAID THE FINE.
  • 00:25:01.280 --> 00:25:06.040
  • HE CRIED OUT "IT IS FINISHED!"
  • 00:25:06.060 --> 00:25:08.020
  • THE DEBT HAS BEEN PAID.
  • 00:25:08.040 --> 00:25:09.260
  • IF YOU'RE IN COURT AND SOMEONE PAYS YOUR FINE,
  • 00:25:09.280 --> 00:25:11.220
  • THE JUDGE CAN SAY THIS PERSON IS GUILTY BUT HE'S
  • 00:25:11.240 --> 00:25:14.050
  • OUT OF HERE BECAUSE SOMEONE PAID THE FINE.
  • 00:25:14.070 --> 00:25:16.060
  • WELL GOD CAN FORGIVE OUR SINS.
  • 00:25:16.080 --> 00:25:18.140
  • HE CAN DISMISS OUR CASE IN AN INSTANT AND
  • 00:25:18.160 --> 00:25:21.040
  • GRANT US THE GIFT OF EVERLASTING LIFE BECAUSE
  • 00:25:21.060 --> 00:25:23.150
  • OF THE SUFFERING DEATH AND THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:25:23.170 --> 00:25:25.110
  • OF THE SAVIOR.
  • 00:25:25.130 --> 00:25:26.180
  • WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IN RESPONSE TO THAT IS TURN
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:28.290
  • FROM OUR SINS, REPENT.
  • 00:25:29.010 --> 00:25:31.080
  • DON'T CARRY ON IN YOUR SINS AND PLAY THE HYPOCRITE.
  • 00:25:31.100 --> 00:25:33.140
  • TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND TRUST IN JESUS LIKE YOU
  • 00:25:33.160 --> 00:25:35.200
  • TRUST A PARACHUTE.
  • 00:25:35.220 --> 00:25:37.100
  • THE MINUTE YOU DO THAT, YOU'LL PASS FROM DEATH TO
  • 00:25:37.120 --> 00:25:39.130
  • LIFE AND THAT HAPPENED TO ME 44 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:25:39.150 --> 00:25:42.080
  • GOD IS TRUE TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:25:42.100 --> 00:25:44.010
  • HE SAYS HE THAT COMES TO ME I'LL IN NO WAYS CAST OUT.
  • 00:25:44.030 --> 00:25:46.200
  • HE'S ABLE TO SAVE TO THE UTTER MOST THOSE THAT
  • 00:25:46.220 --> 00:25:49.190
  • COME TO GOD BY HIM.
  • 00:25:49.210 --> 00:25:51.050
  • SO COME TO THE GOD THAT GAVE YOU LIFE TONIGHT.
  • 00:25:51.070 --> 00:25:53.260
  • PUT DOWN WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING AND JUST GET ON
  • 00:25:53.280 --> 00:25:56.020
  • YOUR KNEES AND SAY GOD, I'M SORRY FOR BREAKING
  • 00:25:56.040 --> 00:25:58.120
  • YOUR LAW. I THANK YOU THAT JESUS DIED FOR ME.
  • 00:25:58.140 --> 00:26:01.200
  • GOD'S NOT INTERESTED IN THE ELOQUENT PRAYER.
  • 00:26:01.220 --> 00:26:03.160
  • HE'S INTERESTED IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:26:03.180 --> 00:26:05.060
  • SO COME TO GOD WITH A SORROWFUL HEART,
  • 00:26:05.080 --> 00:26:07.100
  • WILLFULLY PUT YOUR FAITH IN JESUS. YOU SAY I CAN'T
  • 00:26:07.120 --> 00:26:09.270
  • TRUST A GOD I CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:26:09.290 --> 00:26:12.040
  • LOOK, YOU TRUST A PILOT YOU CAN'T SEE WHEN YOU
  • 00:26:12.060 --> 00:26:13.250
  • GET ON A PLANE.
  • 00:26:13.270 --> 00:26:15.110
  • YOU TRUST HIM WITH YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:15.130 --> 00:26:16.280
  • WHEN YOUR DOCTOR GIVES YOU A COUPLE OF PILLS,
  • 00:26:17.000 --> 00:26:18.100
  • YOU THROW THEM BACK.
  • 00:26:18.120 --> 00:26:19.150
  • YOU DON'T THINK THESE COULD BE POISON.
  • 00:26:19.170 --> 00:26:21.070
  • YOU TRUST YOUR LIFE TO YOUR DOCTOR.
  • 00:26:21.090 --> 00:26:22.260
  • SO WE EXERCISE TRUST IN BANKS, WE EXERCISE TRUST
  • 00:26:22.280 --> 00:26:25.070
  • IN ELEVATORS, SOME STILL EXERCISE
  • 00:26:25.090 --> 00:26:27.130
  • TRUST IN POLITICIANS.
  • 00:26:27.150 --> 00:26:29.130
  • BUT WE'RE SAYING DON'T TRUST MAN; TRUST GOD.
  • 00:26:29.150 --> 00:26:33.000
  • TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:26:33.020 --> 00:26:34.160
  • AND DO THAT TODAY.
  • 00:26:34.180 --> 00:26:36.090
  • REPENT, TRUST IN JESUS, AND GOD WILL REVEAL
  • 00:26:36.110 --> 00:26:38.280
  • HIMSELF TO YOU AND YOU'LL PASS FROM DEATH TO LIFE.
  • 00:26:39.000 --> 00:26:41.010
  • THERE'S A NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN.
  • 00:26:41.030 --> 00:26:42.210
  • CALL IT AND TELL SOMEBODY WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
  • 00:26:42.230 --> 00:26:45.120
  • - MATT CROUCH: RAY, WE ARE SITTING HERE IN THE
  • 00:26:45.140 --> 00:26:48.040
  • MIDST OF A VERY UNIQUE SUBJECT.
  • 00:26:48.060 --> 00:26:52.110
  • PRAISE PROGRAM DOESN'T OFTEN, CHRISTIAN
  • 00:26:52.130 --> 00:26:56.000
  • TELEVISION, CHURCH DOESN'T OFTEN WADE INTO
  • 00:26:56.020 --> 00:26:59.120
  • THE DEEP WATERS OF THE SUBJECT OF SUICIDE.
  • 00:26:59.140 --> 00:27:02.110
  • JESUS IS THE ANSWER FOR THIS ISSUE, LIKE EVERY
  • 00:27:02.130 --> 00:27:06.100
  • ISSUE, BUT IT'S A VERY DEEP, IT'S A VERY DEEP
  • 00:27:06.120 --> 00:27:11.040
  • WELL AS IT WERE. IT'S A DEEP SUBJECT.
  • 00:27:11.060 --> 00:27:14.070
  • AND YOU HAVE WADED THROUGH IT.
  • 00:27:14.090 --> 00:27:17.150
  • YOU'VE BROUGHT THIS PRODUCTION.
  • 00:27:17.170 --> 00:27:19.270
  • AND WE ARE WANTING TO BREAK INTO THE MIDDLE
  • 00:27:19.290 --> 00:27:23.230
  • HERE AND GIVE THE ANSWER, WHICH OF COURSE IS JESUS,
  • 00:27:23.250 --> 00:27:28.000
  • BUT I ALSO WANT TO GIVE THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:27:28.020 --> 00:27:30.230
  • WATCHING THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THIS,
  • 00:27:30.250 --> 00:27:32.260
  • TO GET THIS FOR SOMEONE.
  • 00:27:32.280 --> 00:27:35.130
  • THE SUBJECT OF EXIT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU BY GOING
  • 00:27:35.150 --> 00:27:39.290
  • TO THE INFORMATION ON YOUR SCREEN.
  • 00:27:40.010 --> 00:27:43.030
  • THIS SUBJECT CONTINUES.
  • 00:27:43.050 --> 00:27:45.100
  • IT'S LIFE AND DEATH AS IT WERE, INCREDIBLY POWERFUL
  • 00:27:45.120 --> 00:27:49.250
  • INFORMATION THAT RAY YOU'VE PUT TOGETHER.
  • 00:27:49.270 --> 00:27:53.000
  • IT'S THE SUBJECT OF SUICIDE.
  • 00:27:53.020 --> 00:27:54.140
  • IT CONTINUES RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:27:54.160 --> 00:27:56.130
  • - YOU EVER CONSIDER SUICIDE?
  • 00:27:56.150 --> 00:27:57.170
  • - YES, ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:27:57.190 --> 00:27:59.070
  • - ISN'T IT SCARY?
  • 00:27:59.090 --> 00:28:00.240
  • - UM, I SUPPOSE.
  • 00:28:00.260 --> 00:28:04.110
  • BUT YOU GET KIND OF USED TO IT AFTER A WHILE.
  • 00:28:04.130 --> 00:28:06.230
  • - THERE WAS SUCH AN EPIDEMIC THAT
  • 00:28:07.280 --> 00:28:09.050
  • PSYCHOLOGISTS RECLASSIFIED DEPRESSION
  • 00:28:09.070 --> 00:28:11.110
  • AS A MENTAL DISEASE, AND THIS PAVED THE WAY
  • 00:28:11.130 --> 00:28:13.290
  • FOR ANTIDEPRESSANTS.
  • 00:28:14.010 --> 00:28:16.230
  • ALTHOUGH MANY SAY THESE HAVE BEEN HELPFUL IN TREATING
  • 00:28:16.250 --> 00:28:19.020
  • THEIR DEPRESSION ANTIDEPRESSANTS REMAIN
  • 00:28:19.040 --> 00:28:21.160
  • CONTROVERSIAL BECAUSE THEY SOMETIMES COME WITH
  • 00:28:21.180 --> 00:28:24.080
  • HORRIFIC SIDE EFFECTS.
  • 00:28:24.100 --> 00:28:28.090
  • NAOMI JUDD: I DON'T LOOK LIKE I USUALLY LOOK.
  • 00:28:28.110 --> 00:28:30.100
  • MY HANDS SHAKE REAL BAD.
  • 00:28:30.120 --> 00:28:32.210
  • MEDICATION. NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT.
  • 00:28:32.230 --> 00:28:34.270
  • AND MY FACE, I FEEL LIKE A BALLOON.
  • 00:28:34.290 --> 00:28:38.150
  • MY FACE IS ALL SWOLLEN BECAUSE
  • 00:28:38.170 --> 00:28:40.250
  • OF THE MEDICATION.
  • 00:28:40.270 --> 00:28:42.290
  • - WHEN ROBIN WILLIAMS WAS INTERVIEWED BY THE
  • 00:28:43.010 --> 00:28:44.170
  • GUARDIAN, THEY ASKED HIM IF THE DEATH OF
  • 00:28:44.190 --> 00:28:46.180
  • CHRISTOPHER REEVE, HIS GOOD FRIEND, WAS
  • 00:28:46.200 --> 00:28:49.030
  • INFLUENTIAL IN TURNING HIM BACK TO ALCOHOL?
  • 00:28:49.050 --> 00:28:52.090
  • LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:28:52.110 --> 00:28:56.040
  • HE SAID "NO, IT'S MORE SELFISH THAN THAT.
  • 00:28:56.060 --> 00:28:59.280
  • IT'S JUST LITERALLY BEING AFRAID.
  • 00:29:00.020 --> 00:29:02.080
  • AND YOU THINK OH, THIS WILL EASE THE FEAR.
  • 00:29:02.100 --> 00:29:04.260
  • AND IT DOESN'T."
  • 00:29:04.280 --> 00:29:08.030
  • AND HE WAS ASKED WHAT HE WAS AFRAID OF
  • 00:29:08.050 --> 00:29:09.060
  • AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:29:09.080 --> 00:29:10.170
  • "EVERYTHING. IT'S JUST A GENERAL ALL-AROUND ARGH!
  • 00:29:10.190 --> 00:29:14.120
  • IT'S FEARFULNESS AND ANXIETY."
  • 00:29:14.140 --> 00:29:16.270
  • NOTICE HIS WORDS.
  • 00:29:16.290 --> 00:29:18.110
  • HE SAID "IT'S MORE SELFISH THAN THAT."
  • 00:29:18.130 --> 00:29:21.150
  • WHAT DID HE MEAN?
  • 00:29:21.170 --> 00:29:22.270
  • WELL, WHEN A FRIEND DIES, IT'S TERRIBLY SAD,
  • 00:29:22.290 --> 00:29:26.270
  • BUT WHEN YOU DIE, IT'S TERRIFYING.
  • 00:29:26.290 --> 00:29:31.240
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THIS, THAT EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING
  • 00:29:31.260 --> 00:29:34.070
  • IS HELD PRISONER TO THE FEAR OF DEATH
  • 00:29:34.090 --> 00:29:37.220
  • ALL THEIR LIFETIME.
  • 00:29:37.240 --> 00:29:40.200
  • IT SAYS WHO THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH HAVE BEEN
  • 00:29:40.220 --> 00:29:43.150
  • LIVING ALL THEIR LIVES AS SLAVES TO CONSTANT DREAD.
  • 00:29:43.170 --> 00:29:49.010
  • THAT'S THE DREAD THAT WE ALL FEEL LIKE AWE, AND
  • 00:29:49.030 --> 00:29:53.060
  • YOU CAN WANT EXPLAIN IT, IT'S LIKE A HORROR.
  • 00:29:53.080 --> 00:29:56.020
  • AND IT SEEMS TO BE IRRATIONAL.
  • 00:29:56.040 --> 00:29:57.220
  • BUT IF IT IS A FEAR OF DEATH, THEN IT BECOMES
  • 00:29:57.240 --> 00:30:00.010
  • RATIONAL. YOU'RE NOT MENTALLY UNSTABLE.
  • 00:30:00.030 --> 00:30:02.100
  • THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU THAT SAYS OH,
  • 00:30:02.120 --> 00:30:04.060
  • I DON'T WANT TO DIE. THAT'S NORMAL.
  • 00:30:04.080 --> 00:30:05.250
  • THAT'S SANE TO WANT TO PRESERVE YOUR MOST
  • 00:30:05.270 --> 00:30:07.090
  • PRECIOUS POSSESSION.
  • 00:30:07.110 --> 00:30:09.160
  • - YOU HAVE THIS REALLY MORBID FEAR OF DEATH.
  • 00:30:09.180 --> 00:30:12.210
  • MY WHOLE LIFE, MY HUSBAND AND I SPEND HOURS SITTING
  • 00:30:12.230 --> 00:30:16.060
  • AND TALKING ABOUT IT. THIS SINCE CHILDHOOD, RIGHT?
  • 00:30:16.080 --> 00:30:18.190
  • - YES.
  • 00:30:18.210 --> 00:30:19.280
  • - DID YOU FIND THAT YOU WOULD BE DOING SOMETHING,
  • 00:30:20.000 --> 00:30:21.050
  • YOU'D BE HAPPY, AND THEN IT WOULD ALMOST BE RUINED
  • 00:30:21.070 --> 00:30:23.170
  • BECAUSE THEN YOU'D THINK ABOUT DYING.
  • 00:30:23.190 --> 00:30:25.250
  • - YEAH. IT WAS THERE. I FOUND IT WAS QUITE COMMON.
  • 00:30:25.270 --> 00:30:29.010
  • I'M SO PLEASED TO MEET SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:30:29.030 --> 00:30:31.110
  • - THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!
  • 00:30:31.130 --> 00:30:33.040
  • WOODY ALLEN: SOMEWHERE AROUND FIVE OR SO,
  • 00:30:33.060 --> 00:30:36.080
  • I TURNED GRUMPY OR SOUR.
  • 00:30:36.100 --> 00:30:40.040
  • I CAN ONLY THINK WHEN I BECAME AWARE OF MY
  • 00:30:40.060 --> 00:30:44.240
  • MORTALITY, I DIDN'T LIKE THAT IDEA.
  • 00:30:44.260 --> 00:30:49.150
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS ENDS?
  • 00:30:49.170 --> 00:30:51.270
  • THIS DOESN'T GO ON LIKE THIS?
  • 00:30:51.290 --> 00:30:54.220
  • NO, IT ENDS.
  • 00:30:54.240 --> 00:30:57.170
  • ONCE I REALIZED THAT, I THOUGHT HEY, DEAL ME OUT.
  • 00:30:57.190 --> 00:31:02.220
  • I DON'T WANT TO PLAY IN THIS GAME AND I NEVER WAS
  • 00:31:02.240 --> 00:31:05.260
  • THE SAME AFTER THAT.
  • 00:31:05.280 --> 00:31:08.060
  • ANTHONY HOPKINS: I'M 78, 79 END OF YEAR, AND I THINK
  • 00:31:08.080 --> 00:31:11.190
  • I'M GONNA KEEP GOING. BEFORE I RETIRE, I'D DIE.
  • 00:31:11.210 --> 00:31:15.070
  • LARRY KING: IN JOE BLACK YOU PLAYED A MAN KNOWING
  • 00:31:15.090 --> 00:31:17.010
  • HE WAS GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:31:17.030 --> 00:31:18.200
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:31:18.220 --> 00:31:20.110
  • - DO YOU THINK ABOUT DEATH?
  • 00:31:20.130 --> 00:31:21.280
  • - YEAH. ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:31:22.000 --> 00:31:23.250
  • BUT I DON'T DWELL ON IT IN A MORBID WAY.
  • 00:31:23.270 --> 00:31:27.000
  • - BUT I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD WHEN MY GRANDMOTHER
  • 00:31:27.020 --> 00:31:30.270
  • DIED. LOOKING AT MY STAMP COLLECTION AND I'M LIKE
  • 00:31:30.290 --> 00:31:34.120
  • LOOKING AT THE STAMPS AND I HAD A BUNCH OF OLD
  • 00:31:34.140 --> 00:31:37.120
  • AMERICAN STAMPS WITH PICTURES OF PRESIDENTS ON
  • 00:31:37.140 --> 00:31:40.280
  • THEM, AND I'M LIKE WOW, ALL THESE GUYS ARE DEAD!
  • 00:31:41.000 --> 00:31:44.050
  • GRANDMA'S DEAD.
  • 00:31:44.070 --> 00:31:46.280
  • MY MOM AND DAD ARE GONNA BE DEAD SOMEDAY.
  • 00:31:47.000 --> 00:31:50.090
  • AND THEN I'M LIKE OH, OH, OH,
  • 00:31:50.110 --> 00:31:52.280
  • I'M GONNA BE DEAD SOMEDAY!
  • 00:31:53.000 --> 00:31:54.250
  • BUT I DO REMEMBER THAT BEING AN IMMENSELY
  • 00:31:54.270 --> 00:31:59.140
  • IMPACTFUL NOTION. WHEN MY PARENTS DIED, I WAS SAD
  • 00:31:59.160 --> 00:32:04.260
  • OF COURSE AS I THINK MANY PEOPLE WOULD BE, BUT THEN
  • 00:32:04.280 --> 00:32:07.260
  • RIGHT AFTER THAT I WAS LIKE OH, MAN,
  • 00:32:07.280 --> 00:32:09.270
  • THAT MEANS I'M ON DECK.
  • 00:32:09.290 --> 00:32:11.210
  • - WHAT DO YOU--
  • 00:32:11.230 --> 00:32:13.090
  • - IT KEEPS ME--
  • 00:32:13.110 --> 00:32:14.160
  • - WHAT DO YOU WORRY ABOUT IF MIDLIFE CRISIS--
  • 00:32:14.180 --> 00:32:16.120
  • - I FEAR DEATH. - DEATH?
  • 00:32:16.140 --> 00:32:18.150
  • - YES.
  • 00:32:18.170 --> 00:32:19.180
  • - OKAY. WELL MAYBE WHAT'S--
  • 00:32:19.200 --> 00:32:21.150
  • - I WONDER HOW-- - WE ALL DIE.
  • 00:32:21.170 --> 00:32:23.120
  • MAYBE YOU'LL GO TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:32:23.140 --> 00:32:24.280
  • - OKAY, THAT'S, I NEED HELP.
  • 00:32:25.000 --> 00:32:27.240
  • - WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
  • 00:32:27.260 --> 00:32:29.000
  • - I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE IN?
  • 00:32:29.020 --> 00:32:30.180
  • - LIKE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE?
  • 00:32:30.200 --> 00:32:31.240
  • - YES, I DON'T WANT TO BE A BAG OF DUST!
  • 00:32:31.260 --> 00:32:33.100
  • - AND I CAN'T STAND THE THOUGHT OF NONEXISTENCE.
  • 00:32:33.120 --> 00:32:36.150
  • I ALREADY HAVE EXISTENCE.
  • 00:32:36.170 --> 00:32:38.260
  • - OKAY, IT IS TRUE.
  • 00:32:38.280 --> 00:32:40.270
  • WE FEAR DEATH AND WE ARE BORN KNOWING ONLY LIFE.
  • 00:32:40.290 --> 00:32:44.060
  • I GET THAT.
  • 00:32:44.080 --> 00:32:46.190
  • HOWEVER, I TAKE ANOTHER VIEW BECAUSE
  • 00:32:46.210 --> 00:32:49.130
  • I'VE BEEN ASKED.
  • 00:32:49.150 --> 00:32:51.050
  • IF YOU COULD LIVE FOREVER, WOULD YOU?
  • 00:32:51.070 --> 00:32:54.180
  • - YES.
  • 00:32:54.200 --> 00:32:56.020
  • - BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN BATTLED WHAT HE CALLED
  • 00:32:56.040 --> 00:32:58.090
  • TERRIFYING DEPRESSION FOR MOST OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:32:58.110 --> 00:33:01.090
  • JUST AFTER TWO OF HIS BAND MEMBERS DIED, HE
  • 00:33:01.110 --> 00:33:03.250
  • ENDED UP ON A BEACH BY HIMSELF IN TEARS
  • 00:33:03.270 --> 00:33:06.180
  • WEEPING PROFUSELY.
  • 00:33:06.200 --> 00:33:09.190
  • TIME MAGAZINE SAID WHEN HE WAS IN HIS EARLY 60S,
  • 00:33:09.210 --> 00:33:13.240
  • HIS DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY REDOUBLED TO THE
  • 00:33:13.260 --> 00:33:17.020
  • POINT WHERE HE CAME TO UNDERSTAND THE
  • 00:33:17.040 --> 00:33:18.190
  • APPEAL OF SUICIDE.
  • 00:33:18.210 --> 00:33:21.240
  • - IT'S LIKE THIS THING THAT ENGULFS YOU.
  • 00:33:21.260 --> 00:33:24.200
  • I GOT TO WHERE I DIDN'T WANT TO GET OUT OF BED.
  • 00:33:24.220 --> 00:33:26.200
  • - IT'S LIKE A NIGHTMARE.
  • 00:33:26.220 --> 00:33:29.120
  • - YOU DON'T WAKE UP FROM IT.
  • 00:33:29.140 --> 00:33:30.200
  • - YOU CAN'T WAKE UP.
  • 00:33:30.220 --> 00:33:31.290
  • YOU'RE JUST WAITING FOR IT TO BE OVER AND YOU
  • 00:33:32.010 --> 00:33:33.170
  • KNOW THAT YOU'RE GONNA HAVE A DAY THAT COMES
  • 00:33:33.190 --> 00:33:35.220
  • WHERE YOU FEEL FINE BUT IT'S JUST WAITING
  • 00:33:35.240 --> 00:33:37.070
  • FOR THAT PERIOD.
  • 00:33:37.090 --> 00:33:38.250
  • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE IMPRISONED BY
  • 00:33:38.270 --> 00:33:41.120
  • ALL OF THIS SADNESS.
  • 00:33:41.140 --> 00:33:44.120
  • I ACTUALLY HEARD A QUOTE FROM SOMEBODY THAT HAS
  • 00:33:44.140 --> 00:33:47.090
  • DEPRESSION THAT SAYS DEPRESSION WASN'T AN ENDLESS
  • 00:33:47.110 --> 00:33:49.070
  • GRAY SKY. IT WAS NO SKY AT ALL.
  • 00:33:49.090 --> 00:33:51.090
  • AND I REALLY FEEL LIKE THAT IS TRUE.
  • 00:33:51.110 --> 00:33:53.240
  • IT'S JUST THERE IS NO SKY AND YOU'RE WAITING FOR
  • 00:33:53.260 --> 00:33:57.160
  • SOMETHING TO HAPPEN, YOU'RE WAITING FOR SOME
  • 00:33:57.180 --> 00:33:59.040
  • COLOR. UM, ONE OF THE TIMES I OVERDOSED ON IBUPROFEN,
  • 00:33:59.060 --> 00:34:04.120
  • I MESSED UP MY INTERNAL ORGANS.
  • 00:34:04.140 --> 00:34:06.290
  • - WHY DID YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:34:07.010 --> 00:34:08.180
  • - I FELT LIKE I COULDN'T DO IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:34:08.200 --> 00:34:10.140
  • IT WAS THE THOUGHT OF CONTINUING LIFE WAS
  • 00:34:10.160 --> 00:34:13.020
  • JUST SO UNBEARABLE.
  • 00:34:13.040 --> 00:34:14.160
  • I DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO SEE TOMORROW.
  • 00:34:14.180 --> 00:34:16.280
  • - MY AUNT SHOT HERSELF.
  • 00:34:17.000 --> 00:34:18.130
  • - WHY DID SHE KILL HERSELF?
  • 00:34:18.150 --> 00:34:20.010
  • - WELL, ONE OF THE THINGS SHE WROTE IN HER
  • 00:34:20.030 --> 00:34:22.260
  • SUICIDE NOTE WAS THAT SHE'D BRUSHED HER TEETH,
  • 00:34:22.280 --> 00:34:27.010
  • I DON'T REMEMBER HOW MANY TIMES AND SHE COULDN'T
  • 00:34:27.030 --> 00:34:30.030
  • BEAR TO DO IT AGAIN.
  • 00:34:30.050 --> 00:34:31.210
  • KIND OF LIKE I'M GONNA DO THIS OVER AND OVER,
  • 00:34:31.230 --> 00:34:33.100
  • WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:34:33.120 --> 00:34:34.150
  • - YOU MEAN LIFE IS FUTILE.
  • 00:34:34.170 --> 00:34:35.130
  • - YEAH. WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:34:35.150 --> 00:34:37.290
  • - SO WHEN YOU SAY YOU THINK ABOUT SUICIDE,
  • 00:34:38.010 --> 00:34:39.090
  • ARE YOU DEADLY SERIOUS?
  • 00:34:39.110 --> 00:34:40.220
  • - YES.
  • 00:34:40.240 --> 00:34:42.210
  • - NOW WHAT METHOD HAVE YOU BEEN THINKING ABOUT?
  • 00:34:42.230 --> 00:34:45.020
  • - I GUESS MAKING PLANS BUT NOT ACTUALLY DOING IT.
  • 00:34:45.040 --> 00:34:48.290
  • - WHAT SORT OF PLANS?
  • 00:34:49.010 --> 00:34:50.130
  • - I GUESS PLANS ALWAYS YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:34:50.150 --> 00:34:53.230
  • - GIVE ME SOME FOR INSTANCES.
  • 00:34:53.250 --> 00:34:56.010
  • - FOR INSTANCE, I'VE RESEARCHED ABOUT THE
  • 00:34:56.030 --> 00:34:59.110
  • FASTEST WAYS OR WHAT'S GONNA HURT MORE, WHAT'S
  • 00:34:59.130 --> 00:35:01.270
  • NOT, WHAT TAKES LONGER. STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:35:01.290 --> 00:35:04.240
  • - YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THIS.
  • 00:35:04.260 --> 00:35:06.050
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:35:06.070 --> 00:35:08.180
  • - YOUR LIFE IS VERY PRECIOUS,
  • 00:35:08.200 --> 00:35:10.020
  • DON'T YOU REALIZE THAT?
  • 00:35:10.040 --> 00:35:11.150
  • - UM, I GUESS.
  • 00:35:11.170 --> 00:35:14.100
  • - WOULD YOU SELL ONE OF YOUR EYES FOR A MILLION DOLLARS?
  • 00:35:14.120 --> 00:35:18.020
  • - NO.
  • 00:35:18.040 --> 00:35:20.000
  • - WOULD YOU SELL BOTH FOR 10 MILLION?
  • 00:35:20.020 --> 00:35:21.240
  • - NO.
  • 00:35:21.260 --> 00:35:24.020
  • - CAN YOU SEE HOW PRECIOUS YOUR EYES ARE TO YOU?
  • 00:35:24.040 --> 00:35:25.260
  • YOU WOULDN'T SELL YOUR EYES FOR A HUNDRED
  • 00:35:25.280 --> 00:35:27.070
  • MILLION DOLLARS, SO HOW MUCH MORE IS THAT LIFE
  • 00:35:27.090 --> 00:35:29.100
  • WORTH THAT LOOKS OUT THOSE WINDOWS?
  • 00:35:29.120 --> 00:35:31.080
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO THROW THAT AWAY WITH A SHOT TO
  • 00:35:31.100 --> 00:35:32.240
  • THE HEAD. YOU SHOULDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:35:32.260 --> 00:35:35.060
  • AND THESE ARE ATTEMPTED SUICIDES. IF YOU MEANT
  • 00:35:35.080 --> 00:35:36.290
  • IT, YOU WOULD HAVE JUMPED OFF A CLIFF, NO ONE WOULD
  • 00:35:37.010 --> 00:35:38.020
  • HAVE STOPPED YOU.
  • 00:35:38.040 --> 00:35:39.150
  • THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU THAT SAYS I DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:35:39.170 --> 00:35:41.020
  • DIE. THAT'S YOUR GOD-GIVEN WILL TO LIVE.
  • 00:35:41.040 --> 00:35:43.130
  • MAN, LISTEN TO IT. I DON'T WANT TO DIE.
  • 00:35:43.150 --> 00:35:46.110
  • IT'S AN INSTINCT THAT GOD'S GIVEN YOU.
  • 00:35:46.130 --> 00:35:48.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HE'S CREATED ETERNITY
  • 00:35:48.100 --> 00:35:49.210
  • IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:35:49.230 --> 00:35:51.090
  • ARE YOU AFRAID OF DYING?
  • 00:35:51.110 --> 00:35:54.150
  • - UM, I THINK EVERYBODY'S KIND OF
  • 00:35:54.170 --> 00:35:57.240
  • AFRAID OF DYING ONCE YOU THINK IT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:35:57.260 --> 00:35:59.080
  • HAPPENING TO YOU.
  • 00:35:59.100 --> 00:36:00.270
  • - ARE YOU AFRAID OF DYING?
  • 00:36:00.290 --> 00:36:02.170
  • - UM, YES.
  • 00:36:02.190 --> 00:36:05.210
  • - DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT MUCH?
  • 00:36:05.230 --> 00:36:08.040
  • - SOMETIMES, YEAH, I DO.
  • 00:36:08.060 --> 00:36:10.070
  • - DO YOU FIND IT DEPRESSING?
  • 00:36:10.090 --> 00:36:11.210
  • - UM, YEAH.
  • 00:36:11.230 --> 00:36:13.180
  • - ARE YOU AFRAID OF DYING?
  • 00:36:13.200 --> 00:36:14.250
  • - NO.
  • 00:36:14.270 --> 00:36:16.000
  • - YOU EVER THINK ABOUT IT?
  • 00:36:16.020 --> 00:36:16.290
  • - THINK ABOUT DYING?
  • 00:36:17.010 --> 00:36:18.160
  • - YEAH. - YEAH.
  • 00:36:18.180 --> 00:36:20.140
  • - DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD'S EXISTENCE?
  • 00:36:20.160 --> 00:36:22.020
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:36:22.040 --> 00:36:23.180
  • - UM, NO, NOT REALLY ACTUALLY.
  • 00:36:23.200 --> 00:36:25.230
  • I'M NOT AFRAID OF DYING.
  • 00:36:25.250 --> 00:36:27.140
  • - ARE YOU AFRAID OF DYING?
  • 00:36:27.160 --> 00:36:29.010
  • - UM, I THINK TO A DEGREE.
  • 00:36:29.030 --> 00:36:32.070
  • I DON'T REALLY WANT TO FOCUS ON, I KNOW IT'S OUT
  • 00:36:32.090 --> 00:36:34.210
  • THERE, AND I KNOW IT'S POSSIBLE, AND I KNOW IT'S
  • 00:36:34.230 --> 00:36:36.100
  • GONNA HAPPEN, BUT I THINK IF I WAS TO SIT THERE AND
  • 00:36:36.120 --> 00:36:39.230
  • REALLY DWELL ON IT, YEAH, IT CAN BRING OUT
  • 00:36:39.250 --> 00:36:41.180
  • SOME SCARY FEELINGS.
  • 00:36:41.200 --> 00:36:43.130
  • - EVERYTHING YOU LOVE IS GONNA BE RIPPED FROM YOU BY
  • 00:36:43.150 --> 00:36:45.050
  • THIS THING THAT NOBODY TALKS ABOUT.
  • 00:36:45.070 --> 00:36:47.010
  • IT'S LIKE AN ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM THAT NO ONE
  • 00:36:47.030 --> 00:36:48.200
  • TALKS ABOUT. AND IT'S GONNA STOMP ON ALL OF US,
  • 00:36:48.220 --> 00:36:51.000
  • AND IT'S DEPRESSING IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:36:51.020 --> 00:36:52.150
  • NOW ARE YOU AFRAID OF DYING?
  • 00:36:52.170 --> 00:36:54.230
  • - NO.
  • 00:36:54.250 --> 00:36:56.000
  • - YOU EVER THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN DEATH?
  • 00:36:56.020 --> 00:36:57.050
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:36:57.070 --> 00:36:58.110
  • - DOES IT SCARE YOU?
  • 00:36:58.130 --> 00:37:00.060
  • - NO.
  • 00:37:00.080 --> 00:37:01.130
  • - DEATH DOESN'T SCARE YOU AT ALL?
  • 00:37:01.150 --> 00:37:02.210
  • - NO.
  • 00:37:02.230 --> 00:37:04.250
  • - I THINK IT SCARES EVERYBODY.
  • 00:37:04.270 --> 00:37:07.060
  • EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT DEATH AND NOBODY
  • 00:37:07.080 --> 00:37:08.240
  • WANTS TO DIE. NOBODY IN HIS RIGHT MIND.
  • 00:37:08.260 --> 00:37:11.080
  • I MEAN, THEY'RE NOT LISTENING TO THEIR CRY IN
  • 00:37:11.100 --> 00:37:13.120
  • THEIR HEART THAT SAYS OH, I DON'T WANT TO DIE.
  • 00:37:13.140 --> 00:37:15.110
  • I WANT TO LIVE!
  • 00:37:15.130 --> 00:37:17.010
  • AND THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU THAT SAYS I WANT TO
  • 00:37:17.030 --> 00:37:18.230
  • LIVE. THAT'S GOD GIVEN.
  • 00:37:18.250 --> 00:37:20.240
  • DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD'S EXISTENCE?
  • 00:37:20.260 --> 00:37:22.050
  • - YES.
  • 00:37:22.070 --> 00:37:23.170
  • - DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD'S EXISTENCE?
  • 00:37:23.190 --> 00:37:25.140
  • - YEAH, I DO.
  • 00:37:25.160 --> 00:37:26.290
  • - THERE IS NO GOD SO THERE IS NO JUDGMENT DAY,
  • 00:37:27.010 --> 00:37:29.130
  • SO WHEN I DIE, YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS?
  • 00:37:29.150 --> 00:37:30.220
  • IT'S OVER.
  • 00:37:30.240 --> 00:37:32.290
  • - DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD'S EXISTENCE?
  • 00:37:33.010 --> 00:37:34.280
  • - I DO. I REALLY DO.
  • 00:37:35.000 --> 00:37:37.080
  • THAT'S KIND OF WHAT KEPT ME ALIVE IN HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:37:37.100 --> 00:37:41.010
  • - HAVE YOU BEEN BORN AGAIN?
  • 00:37:41.030 --> 00:37:42.250
  • - I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN SAY THAT I'VE BEEN
  • 00:37:42.270 --> 00:37:44.180
  • BORN AGAIN. I'D LIKE TO.
  • 00:37:44.200 --> 00:37:46.050
  • - DO YOU HAVE ANY FAITH?
  • 00:37:46.070 --> 00:37:47.110
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:37:47.130 --> 00:37:49.040
  • - WHAT DO YOU HAVE FAITH IN?
  • 00:37:49.060 --> 00:37:50.140
  • - IN GOD.
  • 00:37:50.160 --> 00:37:51.180
  • - ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:37:51.200 --> 00:37:52.250
  • - NO. I'M A CATHOLIC.
  • 00:37:52.270 --> 00:37:54.240
  • - ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:37:54.260 --> 00:37:57.050
  • - AH, YEAH, I WOULD SAY SO BUT I DON'T REALLY
  • 00:37:57.070 --> 00:37:59.160
  • GO TO CHURCH SO.
  • 00:37:59.180 --> 00:38:01.230
  • - HAVE YOU BEEN BORN AGAIN?
  • 00:38:01.250 --> 00:38:02.270
  • - BORN AGAIN?
  • 00:38:02.290 --> 00:38:04.160
  • - YEAH, THAT'S WHEN YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:38:04.180 --> 00:38:06.120
  • - OH, THEN NO.
  • 00:38:06.140 --> 00:38:07.260
  • - ARE YOU A GOOD PERSON, ARE YOU GOING TO HEAVEN
  • 00:38:07.280 --> 00:38:09.040
  • WHEN YOU DIE?
  • 00:38:09.060 --> 00:38:10.130
  • - UM, I DON'T THINK THERE IS A HEAVEN.
  • 00:38:10.150 --> 00:38:12.120
  • - SO YOU THINK JESUS WAS LYING?
  • 00:38:12.140 --> 00:38:15.200
  • - LYING?
  • 00:38:15.220 --> 00:38:17.160
  • - YEAH, HE SAID THERE'S A HEAVEN AND THERE'S A
  • 00:38:17.180 --> 00:38:19.000
  • HELL AND THERE'S A GOD THAT'S JUST AND HOLY, AND
  • 00:38:19.020 --> 00:38:21.030
  • YOU HAVE TO FACE HIM ON JUDGMENT DAY AND IT'S A
  • 00:38:21.050 --> 00:38:22.290
  • VERY REAL HELL.
  • 00:38:23.010 --> 00:38:24.200
  • SO ARE YOU A GOOD PERSON?
  • 00:38:24.220 --> 00:38:26.170
  • - NO.
  • 00:38:26.190 --> 00:38:27.280
  • - BROKEN THE COMMANDMENTS?
  • 00:38:28.000 --> 00:38:29.080
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:38:29.100 --> 00:38:30.100
  • - WHICH ONES HAVE YOU BROKEN?
  • 00:38:30.120 --> 00:38:31.220
  • - MOST LIKELY ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:38:31.240 --> 00:38:33.110
  • - YOU'VE LIED AND STOLEN?
  • 00:38:33.130 --> 00:38:34.200
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:38:34.220 --> 00:38:36.050
  • - USED GOD'S NAME IN VAIN AND HAD SEX OUT OF MARRIAGE?
  • 00:38:36.070 --> 00:38:37.250
  • - YEP.
  • 00:38:37.270 --> 00:38:39.050
  • - THE BIBLE SAYS EVEN IF YOU LOOK WITH LUST,
  • 00:38:39.070 --> 00:38:40.250
  • YOU COMMIT ADULTERY IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:38:40.270 --> 00:38:42.150
  • AND THE SCRIPTURES SAY THAT HE WHO HATES HIS
  • 00:38:42.170 --> 00:38:44.050
  • BROTHER IS A MURDERER.
  • 00:38:44.070 --> 00:38:45.190
  • WHAT'S YOU ATTITUDE TOWARD YOUR FATHER?
  • 00:38:45.210 --> 00:38:47.230
  • - HE'S A [BLEEP] I DON'T LIKE HIM.
  • 00:38:47.250 --> 00:38:50.220
  • - WHY DON'T YOU LIKE HIM?
  • 00:38:50.240 --> 00:38:51.190
  • - WHY DON'T YOU LIKE HIM?
  • 00:38:51.210 --> 00:38:53.030
  • - BECAUSE HE LEFT.
  • 00:38:53.050 --> 00:38:55.140
  • - DO YOU THINK THAT COULD BE THE ROOT
  • 00:38:55.160 --> 00:38:56.180
  • OF YOUR DEPRESSION?
  • 00:38:56.200 --> 00:38:57.260
  • - MOST LIKELY. I HAVE A LOT OF HATE TOWARDS HIM.
  • 00:38:57.280 --> 00:38:59.240
  • I DON'T HATE A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT I HATE HIM.
  • 00:38:59.260 --> 00:39:02.100
  • - SO WHAT'S THAT DOING TO HIM?
  • 00:39:02.120 --> 00:39:04.210
  • - I DON'T KNOW, NOTHING PROBABLY.
  • 00:39:04.230 --> 00:39:06.140
  • - IT'S DOING NOTHING, BUT IT'S KILLING YOU.
  • 00:39:06.160 --> 00:39:07.230
  • - YEAH, TRUE.
  • 00:39:07.250 --> 00:39:09.140
  • - WHEN YOU HATE YOUR FATHER, YOU'RE NOT ONLY
  • 00:39:09.160 --> 00:39:11.060
  • DISHONORING YOUR FATHER, BUT YOU'RE COMMITTING
  • 00:39:11.080 --> 00:39:13.130
  • MURDER IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:39:13.150 --> 00:39:15.090
  • SO IF GOD JUDGES YOU BY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:39:15.110 --> 00:39:16.280
  • THAT'S ABOUT SIX, THEN, DO YOU THINK YOU'D
  • 00:39:17.000 --> 00:39:19.000
  • BE INNOCENT OR GUILTY?
  • 00:39:19.020 --> 00:39:20.080
  • - GUILTY.
  • 00:39:20.100 --> 00:39:21.220
  • - WOULD YOU GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL?
  • 00:39:21.240 --> 00:39:23.010
  • - HELL.
  • 00:39:23.030 --> 00:39:24.180
  • - HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED AT A WOMAN WITH LUST?
  • 00:39:24.200 --> 00:39:25.250
  • JESUS SAID, WHEN DO YOU THAT, YOU COMMIT
  • 00:39:25.270 --> 00:39:27.040
  • ADULTERY IN YOUR HEART. EVER DONE THAT?
  • 00:39:27.060 --> 00:39:28.130
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:28.150 --> 00:39:29.270
  • - HAVE YOU EVER USED GOD'S NAME IN VAIN?
  • 00:39:29.290 --> 00:39:30.290
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:31.010 --> 00:39:32.170
  • - JOSCELYN, I'M NOT JUDGING YOU, BUT YOU'VE JUST TOLD ME
  • 00:39:32.190 --> 00:39:34.030
  • YOU'RE A LYING, THIEVING, BLASPHEMOUS, ADULTERER AT
  • 00:39:34.050 --> 00:39:37.050
  • HEART AND A FORNICATOR, AND YOU HAVE TO FACE
  • 00:39:37.070 --> 00:39:38.290
  • GOD ON JUDGMENT DAY.
  • 00:39:39.010 --> 00:39:40.160
  • IF HE JUDGES YOU BY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, WE'VE LOOKED
  • 00:39:40.180 --> 00:39:42.260
  • AT FIVE OF THEM OR FOUR OF THEM, DO YOU THINK YOU'D BE
  • 00:39:42.280 --> 00:39:44.270
  • INNOCENT OR GUILTY?
  • 00:39:44.290 --> 00:39:46.120
  • - I THINK THAT I WOULD BE OKAY BECAUSE I KNOW THAT ALL
  • 00:39:46.140 --> 00:39:50.210
  • SINS EQUAL THE SAME THING, AND I KNOW THAT IF YOU ASK
  • 00:39:50.230 --> 00:39:54.010
  • FOR HIS FORGIVENESS, HE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.
  • 00:39:54.030 --> 00:39:56.000
  • - ARE YOU SURE OF THAT? - I'M POSITIVE.
  • 00:39:56.020 --> 00:39:57.180
  • - WOULD YOU PUT YOUR LIFE ON IT?
  • 00:39:57.200 --> 00:39:58.270
  • - YEAH, WHY NOT?
  • 00:39:58.290 --> 00:40:00.150
  • - YOU ARE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE IT BECAUSE THE BIBLE
  • 00:40:00.170 --> 00:40:01.230
  • SAYS THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:40:01.250 --> 00:40:03.110
  • YOU CAN STAND IN FRONT OF A JUDGE, AND YOU'VE COMMITTED
  • 00:40:03.130 --> 00:40:05.070
  • TERRIBLE CRIME AND SAY, JUDGE, PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:40:05.090 --> 00:40:07.070
  • HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU WALK OUT.
  • 00:40:07.090 --> 00:40:08.290
  • AND GOD'S FAR MORE JUST THAN A JUDGE.
  • 00:40:09.010 --> 00:40:10.230
  • HE JUST WON'T FORGIVE BECAUSE YOU ASK HIM TO.
  • 00:40:10.250 --> 00:40:13.030
  • THERE HAS TO BE A PAYMENT FOR YOUR SINS.
  • 00:40:13.050 --> 00:40:15.290
  • - SO IF GOD JUDGES BY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, WE'VE
  • 00:40:16.010 --> 00:40:17.280
  • LOOKED AT SIX OF THEM, ON JUDGMENT DAY, DO YOU THINK
  • 00:40:18.000 --> 00:40:19.280
  • YOU'D BE INNOCENT OR GUILTY?
  • 00:40:20.000 --> 00:40:21.130
  • - I'D BE GUILTY BY ALL MEANS.
  • 00:40:21.150 --> 00:40:22.230
  • - HEAVEN OR HELL?
  • 00:40:22.250 --> 00:40:24.050
  • - DEFINITELY HELL IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:40:24.070 --> 00:40:25.130
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:40:25.150 --> 00:40:27.130
  • - IF YOU ARE IN COURT, EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE GUILTY,
  • 00:40:27.150 --> 00:40:29.160
  • IF SOMEONE PAYS YOUR FINE, THE JUDGE CAN LET YOU GO.
  • 00:40:29.180 --> 00:40:31.190
  • HE CAN BE JUST AND DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT AND
  • 00:40:31.210 --> 00:40:33.180
  • STILL LET YOU GO.
  • 00:40:33.200 --> 00:40:35.010
  • HE CAN SAY, YEAH, THIS GUY IS GUILTY, BUT SOMEONE'S
  • 00:40:35.030 --> 00:40:36.150
  • PAID HIS FINE. HE'S OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:40:36.170 --> 00:40:38.020
  • WHEN JESUS WAS ON THE CROSS, HE CRIED OUT,
  • 00:40:38.040 --> 00:40:39.170
  • IT IS FINISHED.
  • 00:40:39.190 --> 00:40:41.040
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THE DEBT HANDS BEEN PAID, AND THEN HE
  • 00:40:41.060 --> 00:40:44.000
  • ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND DEFEATED DEATH, AND WHAT
  • 00:40:44.020 --> 00:40:45.270
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS REPENT AND TRUST IN HIM LIKE YOU
  • 00:40:45.290 --> 00:40:48.050
  • TRUST A PARACHUTE.
  • 00:40:48.070 --> 00:40:50.040
  • THE MINUTE YOU DO THAT, GOD WILL FORGIVE EVERY SECRET
  • 00:40:50.060 --> 00:40:52.080
  • SIN, EVERY OPEN SIN YOU'VE EVER COMMITTED,
  • 00:40:52.100 --> 00:40:55.010
  • AND GRANT YOU THE GIFT EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:40:55.030 --> 00:40:56.170
  • HE'LL LET YOU LIVE.
  • 00:40:56.190 --> 00:40:58.170
  • HE'LL DISMISS YOUR COURT CASE, COMMUTE YOUR DEATH
  • 00:40:58.190 --> 00:41:00.170
  • SENTENCE, BECAUSE HE'S RICH IN MERCY.
  • 00:41:00.190 --> 00:41:03.030
  • SO PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS, OKAY?
  • 00:41:03.050 --> 00:41:04.130
  • - FOR SURE.
  • 00:41:04.150 --> 00:41:06.120
  • - OKAY, SO HERE'S A QUICK SUMMATION.
  • 00:41:06.140 --> 00:41:08.010
  • IF YOU DIED TODAY, AND GOD GAVE YOU JUSTICE,
  • 00:41:08.030 --> 00:41:10.150
  • YOU'D END UP IN HELL.
  • 00:41:10.170 --> 00:41:11.290
  • THERE ARE TWO THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO TO BE SAVED.
  • 00:41:12.010 --> 00:41:13.230
  • YOU GOT TO REPENT AND PUT YOUR FAITH IN JESUS, BE
  • 00:41:13.250 --> 00:41:15.160
  • BORN-AGAIN.
  • 00:41:15.180 --> 00:41:18.080
  • WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU'LL DO THAT?
  • 00:41:18.100 --> 00:41:21.130
  • - UM, RIGHT NOW. - ARE YOU SERIOUS?
  • 00:41:21.150 --> 00:41:23.240
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:41:23.260 --> 00:41:25.270
  • - WOULD YOU BE OKAY WITH ME PRAYING WITH YOU?
  • 00:41:25.290 --> 00:41:27.290
  • - YEAH. - DOES THIS ALL MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:41:28.010 --> 00:41:29.240
  • - IT'S MAKING SENSE, YES.
  • 00:41:29.260 --> 00:41:31.200
  • - SO IF YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY, AND GOD GAVE YOU
  • 00:41:31.220 --> 00:41:33.210
  • JUSTICE, YOU'D END UP IN HELL.
  • 00:41:33.230 --> 00:41:35.100
  • THERE ARE TWO THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO TO BE SAVED.
  • 00:41:35.120 --> 00:41:37.000
  • YOU GOT TO REPENT AND TRUST IN JESUS.
  • 00:41:37.020 --> 00:41:38.180
  • WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO DO THAT?
  • 00:41:38.200 --> 00:41:41.130
  • - WELL, IT'S NOT SOMETHING I DON'T FEEL LIKE I CAN DO
  • 00:41:41.150 --> 00:41:43.180
  • OVERNIGHT, BUT I WANT TO START EXPLORING. I REALLY DO.
  • 00:41:43.200 --> 00:41:46.290
  • - LET ME SAY THIS. YOU'RE ON THE EDGE OF THE PLANE.
  • 00:41:47.010 --> 00:41:49.030
  • YOU'RE GOING TO JUMP ANY SECOND, AND I SAY,
  • 00:41:49.050 --> 00:41:51.160
  • HERE'S A PARACHUTE.
  • 00:41:51.180 --> 00:41:52.230
  • WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PUT IT ON?
  • 00:41:52.250 --> 00:41:54.040
  • WELL, THAT'S SOMETHING I'M GOING TO EXPLORE
  • 00:41:54.060 --> 00:41:55.200
  • AND THINK ABOUT.
  • 00:41:55.220 --> 00:41:57.080
  • - WHEN YOU USE THAT ANALOGY, IT DOES SOUND
  • 00:41:57.100 --> 00:41:58.160
  • REALLY BAD AND SILLY.
  • 00:41:58.180 --> 00:42:00.230
  • - DON'T PUT THIS OFF. YOU CAN PUT OFF YOUR WEDDING,
  • 00:42:00.250 --> 00:42:02.160
  • YOU CAN PUT OFF SO MANY THINGS IN LIFE, BUT DON'T
  • 00:42:02.180 --> 00:42:05.050
  • PUT OFF YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION.
  • 00:42:05.070 --> 00:42:07.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS TODAY, IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,
  • 00:42:07.080 --> 00:42:09.130
  • DON'T HARDEN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:42:09.150 --> 00:42:11.020
  • AND THINK OF HOW EARNESTLY I'M TALKING TO YOU.
  • 00:42:11.040 --> 00:42:12.250
  • WHY AM I TALKING LIKE THERE?
  • 00:42:12.270 --> 00:42:14.140
  • IT'S ONLY BECAUSE I CARE.
  • 00:42:14.160 --> 00:42:15.270
  • NO OTHER REASON, OKAY?
  • 00:42:15.290 --> 00:42:18.110
  • SO ARE YOU GOING TO MORE THAN THINK ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:42:18.130 --> 00:42:20.080
  • ARE YOU GOING TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD, LIKE TODAY?
  • 00:42:20.100 --> 00:42:22.100
  • DON'T FEEL PRESSURED BY ME.
  • 00:42:22.120 --> 00:42:23.240
  • - YES. - YOU ARE?
  • 00:42:23.260 --> 00:42:26.000
  • - NOW, DO YOU HAVE A BIBLE? - I DO.
  • 00:42:26.020 --> 00:42:27.200
  • - WHEN DID YOU LAST READ IT?
  • 00:42:27.220 --> 00:42:29.090
  • - IT'S BEEN A VERY LONG TIME.
  • 00:42:29.110 --> 00:42:31.070
  • - HEY, YOU JUST TOLD ME YOU'RE A LYING THIEF,
  • 00:42:31.090 --> 00:42:33.020
  • A BLASPHEMER AND AN ADULTERER AT HEART. HEY, HANG ON!
  • 00:42:33.040 --> 00:42:35.210
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:42:35.230 --> 00:42:47.170
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:42:47.190 --> 00:42:49.070
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT CREATED EVERYTHING,
  • 00:42:49.090 --> 00:42:50.130
  • AND I DON'T CARE.
  • 00:42:50.150 --> 00:42:52.000
  • - BUT WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO IS LEAVE YOURSELF IN
  • 00:42:52.020 --> 00:42:53.170
  • FUTILITY AND IN DEATH WHEN THE ONLY ANSWER TO YOUR
  • 00:42:53.190 --> 00:42:56.060
  • DILEMMA IS THE GOD THAT GAVE YOU LIFE.
  • 00:42:56.080 --> 00:43:01.140
  • THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE ALL GET DOWN AND DEPRESSED, BUT
  • 00:43:01.160 --> 00:43:03.280
  • THE SCRIPTURES SAY THAT EVEN WHEN ANOTHER CHRISTIAN DIES,
  • 00:43:04.000 --> 00:43:06.250
  • WE'RE SORROWFUL, BUT WE DON'T SORROW AS OTHERS WHO
  • 00:43:06.270 --> 00:43:09.260
  • HAVE NO HOPE.
  • 00:43:09.280 --> 00:43:14.070
  • - SO WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHRISTIAN AND A
  • 00:43:14.090 --> 00:43:16.140
  • NON-CHRISTIAN WHEN THIS COMES TO DEATH?
  • 00:43:16.160 --> 00:43:18.170
  • WELL, LET ME GIVE YOU AN ANALOGY.
  • 00:43:18.190 --> 00:43:20.080
  • YOU'RE STANDING ON A PLANE, ON THE EDGE OF A PLANE TEN
  • 00:43:20.100 --> 00:43:22.150
  • THOUSAND FEET UP.
  • 00:43:22.170 --> 00:43:24.210
  • YOU'RE GOING TO JUMP WITHOUT A PARACHUTE.
  • 00:43:24.230 --> 00:43:27.040
  • ARE YOU SCARED? OH, YES, TERRIFIED!
  • 00:43:27.060 --> 00:43:32.220
  • BUT IF I GAVE YOU A PARACHUTE, WOULD
  • 00:43:32.240 --> 00:43:35.050
  • THAT CHANGE THINGS? YOU'D SAY, OH, I'M SAVED.
  • 00:43:35.070 --> 00:43:38.020
  • I'M SAVED, AND YOU'D GRIP THAT PARACHUTE FOR
  • 00:43:38.040 --> 00:43:40.130
  • YOUR VERY LIFE.
  • 00:43:40.150 --> 00:43:42.260
  • AND SO YOU HAVE THE NON-CHRISTIAN, THE PERSON
  • 00:43:42.280 --> 00:43:45.010
  • WITHOUT FAITH FACING DEATH.
  • 00:43:45.030 --> 00:43:48.120
  • THAT FEAR WILL BE WITHOUT CONTROL, BUT WHEN THE
  • 00:43:48.140 --> 00:43:53.260
  • CHRISTIAN PASSES THROUGH DEATH, WHEN I HAVE MY DAY,
  • 00:43:53.280 --> 00:43:57.090
  • THE BIGGEST DAY OF MY LIFE, MY FEAR WILL BE IN DIRECT
  • 00:43:57.110 --> 00:44:01.090
  • RELATION TO HOW MUCH FAITH I HAVE IN THE SAVIOR.
  • 00:44:01.110 --> 00:44:06.050
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:44:06.070 --> 00:44:09.150
  • THINK OF PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, THAT WONDERFUL ALLEGORY
  • 00:44:09.170 --> 00:44:12.090
  • WHERE CHRISTIAN HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE THAT I HAD.
  • 00:44:12.110 --> 00:44:15.260
  • HE REALIZED AS A YOUNG MARRIED MAN THAT HE WAS IN
  • 00:44:15.280 --> 00:44:18.180
  • THE CITY OF DESTRUCTION, AND HE BEGAN CRYING OUT, "LIFE,
  • 00:44:18.200 --> 00:44:21.280
  • LIFE, ETERNAL LIFE!" HE SAW AN EVANGELIST.
  • 00:44:22.000 --> 00:44:24.140
  • THE EVANGELIST SAID HEAD FOR THAT LIGHT.
  • 00:44:24.160 --> 00:44:26.130
  • HE CAME TO THE CROSS, REALIZED HIS SIN, SAW THAT
  • 00:44:26.150 --> 00:44:30.010
  • GOD HAD PROVIDED THE LAMB TO TAKE AWAY THE SIN OF THE
  • 00:44:30.030 --> 00:44:33.190
  • WORLD, AND HIS BURDENS OF SIN FELL OFF HIS BACK.
  • 00:44:33.210 --> 00:44:36.080
  • HE FOUND EVERLASTING LIFE, AND HE BEGAN WALKING THE
  • 00:44:36.100 --> 00:44:38.030
  • STRAIGHT AND NARROW WITH HIS FRIEND HOPEFUL.
  • 00:44:38.050 --> 00:44:40.080
  • THEY GOT OFF TRACK AND MET A MAN CALLED GIANT DESPAIR.
  • 00:44:40.100 --> 00:44:44.150
  • WHAT A GREAT TERMINOLOGY FOR DEPRESSION.
  • 00:44:44.170 --> 00:44:47.050
  • AND HE PUT THEM INTO DOUBTING CASTLE, AND HE BEAT
  • 00:44:47.070 --> 00:44:50.100
  • THEM TO A PULP AND SAID, "YOU BETTER COMMIT SUICIDE
  • 00:44:50.120 --> 00:44:53.070
  • BEFORE I COME BACK AND KILL YOU." AND CHRISTIAN PUT HIS
  • 00:44:53.090 --> 00:44:59.160
  • HAND IN HIS BREAST, PULLED OUT A KEY.
  • 00:44:59.180 --> 00:45:02.080
  • HE SAID, "WHAT A FOOL I AM.
  • 00:45:02.100 --> 00:45:04.090
  • THIS IS THE KEY OF PROMISE, AND IT WILL UNLOCK THE DOOR
  • 00:45:04.110 --> 00:45:07.130
  • OF DOUBTING CASTLE." AND SO WHEN YOU AND I ARE ON THE
  • 00:45:07.150 --> 00:45:09.230
  • STRAIGHT AND NARROW, WE BEGIN DOUBTING THE PROMISES
  • 00:45:09.250 --> 00:45:11.210
  • OF GOD, WE WILL HAVE IMMEDIATE DESPAIR, DEPRESSION.
  • 00:45:11.230 --> 00:45:17.000
  • AND THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO BELIEVE THE PROMISES OF GOD.
  • 00:45:17.020 --> 00:45:19.070
  • JUST HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:45:19.090 --> 00:45:20.280
  • IT'S IN YOUR OWN HEART.
  • 00:45:21.000 --> 00:45:22.160
  • I CAN'T BELIEVE FOR YOU.
  • 00:45:22.180 --> 00:45:25.040
  • YOUR MOM AND DAD OR FRIENDS CAN'T HAVE FAITH FOR YOU.
  • 00:45:25.060 --> 00:45:28.040
  • IT'S YOU THAT HAS TO TAKE THE KEY OF PROMISE OUT OF
  • 00:45:28.060 --> 00:45:30.190
  • YOUR OWN BREAST AND BELIEVE GOD'S PROMISES.
  • 00:45:30.210 --> 00:45:34.020
  • YOU HAVE FRIENDS BECAUSE YOU TRUST THEM.
  • 00:45:34.040 --> 00:45:35.290
  • THEY TRUST YOU.
  • 00:45:36.010 --> 00:45:37.200
  • TRY SAYING TO ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS, I DON'T TRUST YOU.
  • 00:45:37.220 --> 00:45:40.090
  • THAT FRIENDSHIP IS OVER.
  • 00:45:40.110 --> 00:45:42.050
  • THE SAME APPLIES VERTICALLY.
  • 00:45:42.070 --> 00:45:46.260
  • WITHOUT FAITH, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM.
  • 00:45:46.280 --> 00:45:49.060
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT, IT'S NOT SPEAKING OF FAITH.
  • 00:45:49.080 --> 00:45:51.250
  • HE EXISTS. WE KNOW GOD EXISTS.
  • 00:45:51.270 --> 00:45:54.210
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE A CREATION WITHOUT A CREATOR.
  • 00:45:54.230 --> 00:45:56.190
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR NATURE TO MAKE ITSELF.
  • 00:45:56.210 --> 00:46:00.210
  • THE INVISIBLE THINGS OF HIM FROM THE CREATION OF THE
  • 00:46:00.230 --> 00:46:02.280
  • WORLD ARE CLEARLY SEEN BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS
  • 00:46:03.000 --> 00:46:05.180
  • THAT ARE MADE EVEN AS ETERNAL POWER IN GOD SO THAT
  • 00:46:05.200 --> 00:46:07.200
  • THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
  • 00:46:07.220 --> 00:46:09.290
  • WE ALL INTUITIVELY KNOW THAT GOD EXISTS, AND WE KNOW HE
  • 00:46:10.010 --> 00:46:12.150
  • REQUIRES MORALITY BECAUSE WE HAVE A CONSCIENCE.
  • 00:46:12.170 --> 00:46:15.040
  • CONSCIENCE MEANS "WITH KNOWLEDGE." NOW, WHEN IT
  • 00:46:15.060 --> 00:46:18.050
  • SPEAKS OF FAITH IN GOD, IT MEANS TRUSTING
  • 00:46:18.070 --> 00:46:20.090
  • IN HIS INTEGRITY.
  • 00:46:20.110 --> 00:46:22.250
  • AND WE INSULT HIM WHEN WE HAVE DOUBT IN OUR HEART, AND
  • 00:46:22.270 --> 00:46:25.170
  • WE GET INTO DOUBTING CASTLE, AND THERE IS GIANT
  • 00:46:25.190 --> 00:46:28.020
  • DESPAIR TO TORMENT US AND WHISPER ABOUT
  • 00:46:28.040 --> 00:46:31.020
  • DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE.

  • THAT BATTLE FIRSTHAND.

  • DEALING WITH DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES, OR I WAS

  • TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE DECISIONS, AND BEFORE I HAD
  • 00:51:13.250 --> 00:51:16.270
  • TURNED 16, I HAD ALREADY BECOME A VERY

  • DISTRESSED YOUNG MAN.
  • 00:51:19.140 --> 00:51:21.100
  • I WAS KICKED OUT OF TWO HIGH SCHOOLS.

  • 00:51:26.140 --> 00:51:29.120
  • COMMIT SUICIDE IN FRONT OF MY OWN FAMILY.
  • 00:51:29.140 --> 00:51:33.040

  • OF HIS ROPE AND THOUGHT THAT SUICIDE MAY HAVE BEEN HIS
  • 00:51:52.080 --> 00:51:55.140

  • 00:56:48.220 --> 00:56:52.190
  • HIS HEART, AND NO ONE DID A THING TO STOP THEM.
  • 00:56:52.210 --> 00:56:57.200
  • THAT'S THE BEGINNING OF A BOOK WE'VE GOT CALLED "HOW
  • 00:56:57.220 --> 00:57:00.280
  • TO BATTLE DEPRESSION AND THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE".
  • 00:57:01.000 --> 00:57:03.080
  • AND WHAT HAPPENS IS THIS STRANGER FINDS HIMSELF ON
  • 00:57:03.100 --> 00:57:06.030
  • THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, AND HE SEES A GUY GOING TO JUMP
  • 00:57:06.050 --> 00:57:08.070
  • IN THE FOG, AND HE SAID, "DON'T DO IT." AND THE GUY
  • 00:57:08.090 --> 00:57:10.030
  • SAYS, "I'M GOING TO DO IT. GO AWAY.
  • 00:57:10.050 --> 00:57:11.130
  • I DON'T WANT TO TALK.
  • 00:57:11.150 --> 00:57:13.000
  • I'M GOING TO DO THIS." HE SAYS, "LET ME TALK TO YOU."
  • 00:57:13.020 --> 00:57:14.230
  • HE SAYS, "NO." HE SAYS, "LOOK, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:57:14.250 --> 00:57:16.140
  • TO DO IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:57:16.160 --> 00:57:18.070

  • 00:57:22.050 --> 00:57:25.030
  • AND THE GUY'S GOING TO JUMP SAYS, "THAT'S A HORRIBLE
  • 00:57:25.050 --> 00:57:27.030
  • THING. THAT MAKES ME MAD.
  • 00:57:27.050 --> 00:57:28.210
  • THAT'S EVIL." AND THE STRANGER SAID,
  • 00:57:28.230 --> 00:57:30.050
  • "NO, IT'S NOT.
  • 00:57:30.070 --> 00:57:31.220

  • YOU TALKING ABOUT? IT'S EVIL!"
  • 00:57:33.130 --> 00:57:35.060
  • HE SAYS, "NO, NO. THEY WERE SURGEONS.
  • 00:57:35.080 --> 00:57:36.240
  • THEY WERE A GROUP OF MASKED MEN WITH KNIVES WHO KNOCKED
  • 00:57:36.260 --> 00:57:41.050
  • HIM OUT THROUGH ANESTHESIA, CUT OPEN HIS CHEST AND
  • 00:57:41.070 --> 00:57:43.120
  • REPLACED HIS BAD HEART WITH A GOOD HEART, AND NO ONE

  • STOPPED THEM BECAUSE THEY SAVED HIS LIFE.
  • 00:57:45.260 --> 00:57:48.110
  • THEY WERE SURGEONS." AND THE GUY WHO'S GOING TO COMMIT
  • 00:57:48.130 --> 00:57:50.290
  • SUICIDE SAYS, "OH." AND THE STRANGER SAYS, "OH, INDEED."
  • 00:57:51.010 --> 00:57:54.190
  • HE SAID, "YOU JUST CHANGED YOUR MIND FROM SOMETHING
  • 00:57:54.210 --> 00:57:56.210
  • BEING EVIL TO BEING GOOD IN SECONDS BECAUSE
  • 00:57:56.230 --> 00:57:59.100

  • I'VE GOT INFORMATION THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT

  • "OKAY, TALK.
  • 00:58:04.270 --> 00:58:06.160
  • I'M NOT PROMISING ANYTHING, BUT TALK." AND THEN
